Ahmadinejad refutes reports on ostensible uranium trace findings
(ITAR-TASS) - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran has refuted reports by Western diplomatic sources, who said on conditions of anonymity that inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have identified traces of highly enriched uranium at a nuclear facility in his country.
Ahmadinejad told correspondents upon completion of the Islamic Eight summit conference he never heard anything about it, reports Trend.
He reiterated that Iran builds all of its nuclear activity under strict control on the part of the IAEA and its nuclear projects are exclusively peaceful, which means that the world community has nothing to worry about.
Ahmadinejad added that the inspectors keep the Iranian program under permanent watch and all future works in atomic energy in Iran will remain under IAEA control.
He accused the countries longing for a brawl of spreading misinformation in a bid to strip Iran of its legitimate right to developing its own atomic energy industry.
Ahmadinejad also underlined Irans readiness to continue discussions of the problem, but not to the sound of clanging arms.
