TEHRAN, September 10. (Itar-Tass) – Talks on the Iranian nuclear program may resume in New York as early as next week, during the General Assembly of the United Nations, said Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s President during a meeting with Iranian religious officials.
“As far as the dialogue with the “Six” (five UNSC members and Germany) goes, it will continue. The location of the next round will be determined later,” ISNA news agency quotes the president.
Speaking on the nuclear program, Rouhani emphasized that the “Iranian people has a right for peaceful use of nuclear energy and the new government of Iran will not step down from this right,” adding that Tehran has no plans on using nuclear technology for military purposes, as it contradicts Islam and fatwah (religious teachings) of the spiritual leader.
