Iran says it holds talks on nuclear cooperation, but not nuclear rights
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday the country enters into talks on nuclear cooperation, refusing dialogue on Iran's nuclear rights, ISNA reported.
Concerning Iran's certain nuclear rights he said, "the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) articles of association and the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) specify rights of the member states including the right of access to fuel enrichment chain and fuel production.
"Such rights mentioned by law cannot be negotiated, but we hold talks and engage in nuclear cooperation," Ahmadinejad told a press conference.
"We hope that those who are to take part in the next round of talks (negotiation between P5+1 and Iran) would come to understand that bullying and unlawful measures bring no result."
"We hope that they hold talks based on dignity and law since fruitful results will be gained, if they follow such an approach."
