Hosseini: Iran to Consider New Ideas Concerning its Nuclear Rights

November 25, 2007

Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said here Sunday that Tehran will consider ideas securing Iran's nuclear rights.

Talking to reporters during his weekly press briefing, he added, "The proposed ideas and plans should not be imposed on Iran beyond the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and international regulations." The proposals should not violate Iran's rights as well, Hosseini said in response to a question on a proposal by EU Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana, at the threshold of his meeting with Iran's Secretary of Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili, on enrichment by Iran at joint international centers.

Hosseini reiterated, "Tehran is ready to consider and study different ideas within the NPT framework."
In his meeting with Solana, Jalili will set forth new ideas, he said.

Jalili and Solana are to meet in London on Friday November 30.
