Iran : Won't stop uranium tests

Jan 20, 2013, 09:42 IST | Agencies

Iran's delegate to the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA), Ali Asghar Soltaneih, reportedly denied his plans to stop the Uranium enrichment programme in his country

This comes two days after senior IAEA investigators ended talks with Iranian officials on allegations the Islamic Republic may have carried out tests on triggers for atomic weapon.

Soltaneih said his country will not “for a moment,” listen to the demands put forth by the UN. He claimed the program is for producing nuclear fuel and for other peaceful purposes. He added that thus, it was Tehran’s right under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.
