(The Voice of Russia) - Iran has finally said it may agree to freeze its uranium enrichment program. Iranian spokesman Jawad Vaedi said in Vienna that a pledge to freeze this program could be a result of successful negotiations, not a necessary condition for negotiations. He also said Tehran had no intention of obtaining nuclear weapons, reports Trend. It would only feel threatened as a nuclear nation. Tehran has formed several ad hoc commissions for an in-depth analysis of suggestions that were drawn up by the five permanent members of the Security Council of the United Nations and Germany. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan expects it to voice its view of the international suggestions after the St Petersburg summit of the G-8 club which will take place on the 15th through 17th of next month. Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad says the world will hear from his country before August 22.
