Ahmadinejad Declines to Negotiate Nuke Programme

Terming his country’s nuclear programme as “right”, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that he will never negotiate with world powers on the issue.

Addressing a press conference, he said that the nuclear issue is concluded from Iran’s point of view. However, he said that his country would discus ways to cooperate on the “peaceful use” of nuclear energy.

Needles to add, a group of six biggest world powers, five of them members of UN Security Council – the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain, plus Germany – has been seeking a dialogue with Iran over its contentious nuclear programme.

For the purpose, the group has also offered a number of incentives so that Iran put to a stop its nuclear enrichment activities, with keeping the very option open: putting sanctions in case of non-cooperation.

On the other hand, Iran says that it will present the group its own package of proposals soon.

Ahmadinejad also offered to hold a public debate with US President Barack Obama.

The United States and its Western allies have accused Iran of seeking to develop nuclear weapons. Iran insists its atomic program is for peaceful, civilian purposes.
