TEHRAN, March 3. /TASS/. Iran is not planning to make any concessions to Washington at talks on the future of Tehran’s nuclear program, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday.
According to a report by IRNA news agency, Zarif said Iran has entered the talks "in ultimate sincerity" and will go on with the negotiations until securing "its full nuclear rights."
Tehran "will never yield to the greedy and illogical demands of the parties involved in the talks," the report says.
The remarks come in response to the statement of US President Barack Obama on Tuesday that Tehran should agree to freeze its sensitive nuclear activities for at least 10 years.
Zarif said that such remarks could never "undermine the strong will of the Iranian nation in developing peaceful nuclear technology," the report says.
The Iranian foreign minister traveled to Montreux, Switzerland on Monday for talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Iran’s nuclear program.
The P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council — the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and France plus Germany) and Tehran have earlier set a June 30 final deadline for an agreement in the talks on Iran’s nuclear program.
Iran says it needs nuclear power to generate electricity, but Western powers led by Washington claim Iran’s eventual aim is to create nuclear weapons.
