Iran continues its discussions on nuclear fuel with the West, Iranian Foreign Minister Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying by the Irna news agency.
"Tehran has never claimed to cease negotiations on low-enriched uranium," he said at the news conference today. "We are ready to continue the talks if favorable conditions are created by the West."
Recently, Iran has announced that it is ready to transfer low-enriched uranium to the beneficiation, but only on the territory of Iran.
"We do not believe the West," Mehmanparast said. "If Western countries will create conditions under which we can trust them, we will continue to pursue the negotiations. Otherwise we will enrich our existing uranium to 20 percent, independently."
In October, representatives of the U.S., Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany agreed in principle on the beneficiation of low-level Iranian uranium in other countries at the six-party talks on Iran's nuclear program in Geneva. The proposal was made earlier by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
