Iran will never give up uranium enrichment activities: spokesman

TEHRAN, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Wednesday that Iran will never give up uranium enrichment activities.

"Enrichment activities will never be given up in our country," Mehmanparast told Xinhua. "The nuclear issue of our country is totally peaceful and is a basic right of our nation."

The spokesman's remarks come as the Islamic republic and the G5+ 1 (five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany) are negotiating to restart new round of talks over Tehran's nuclear program.

Mehmanparast stressed that there is never a talk about giving up "peaceful" nuclear activities in Iran.

The West suspects that Iran's uranium enrichment may be meant for producing nuclear weapons, which has been denied by Iranian officials. In January 2011, six world powers wrapped up crucial nuclear talks with Iran in Istanbul but failed to reach any agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.
