Iran seeks N-cooperation based on justice, law
The Iranian president says that Tehran seeks to have nuclear cooperation in equal conditions and based on mutual respect and observing human rights.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an interview with France 24 TV Channel that Iran was not waiting for a miracle to happen in Istanbul and Baghdad talks but it expects to see talks are pursued in equal conditions where rights of parties are respected. He said Iran is always ready to turn the current interaction into cooperation, IRIB News Agency reported.
He said that the two sides lack trust in each other, adding cooperation is needed to reach a satisfactory point. He said Iran has proper proposals which will put forward in appropriate time.
As for enrichment, the president said Iran let the IAEA know about its need for 20 percent enriched uranium but that the producing countries set political conditions for providing Iran with that so Iran had no other option but to invest on enrichment and started to produce it on its own. He reiterated that it is an absolute right of Iran to do so, stressing it has nothing to do with developing an atomic bomb.
He said Iran sees no sense in trusting the Western nations that do possess nuclear weapons, adding that Iran is totally opposed to nuclear weaponry. He then lashed out at the literature the West is using against the Iranian nation and said it is insulting.
"Iran has never attacked any country but they have. They have waged wars here and there. It is Iran that should make complaints. The way they talk with the Iranian nation is insulting. They make threats against the Iranian nation," he added.
Asked about a new face in France, Ahmadinejad said Iran is ready to be part of any effort which aims to create equal conditions for people in the world, adding Iran welcomes any positive step. He underlined that Iran nurses no animosity against any nation but that it seeks friendship.
Asked about his take on the recent massacre in Syria, the Iranian president said that Iran condemns anybody who is behind such a tragic event, hoping fact-finding committees could shed more light on the incident so that the perpetrators of the mass killing could be brought to justice.
He then questioned reports which blame the Syrian government for the attack, saying that it would bring nothing for any government to carry out such an attack, asking why a government needs to kill its own people.
He said that problems do exist everywhere, adding mismanagement is to blame for any problem the world nations are facing. He said people in the world can solve problems and build the world if they work together and try to ease the existing concerns.
