Baku, Azerbaijan, May 21
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said his country would never sign a nuclear agreement that gives military, security and technology secrets to foreigners.
He said that during nuclear negotiations, Iranian government has done great diplomatic work, IRNA reported May 21.
Rouhani said, "I promise anybody who is witness to the nuclear negotiations or should be aware in future would feel proud certainly."
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameni emphasized during his speech on May 20 that Iran will never allow foreigners to inspect the country's military centers. He said that the counter side has brought new issues to the negotiations.
"Now they say that Iran should allow them to interview with the Islamic Republic's nuclear scientists," Khamenei said, adding this means interrogation.
The West insists that a ruling by the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency on the allegations about past activities, based on full Iranian cooperation with an IAEA probe, is essential to be able to understand Tehran's present nuclear activities.
IAEA demands Iran to allow inspection in Parchin military base close to Tehran. The IAEA visited the site twice in 2005 in a voluntary cooperation by Iran to build trust with the world community. One of the most critical questions posed by IAEA is the probability of high exposition tests at the Parchin.
Coming to Khamenei's statement, Rouhani said government always obey his position. "Negotiators know the read-lines, including the uranium enrichment process completely".
