Iran rejects world powers’ ultimatum on nuclear program

Spokesman Ghashghavi says Iran won’t bow to the pressure.

After the five members of the UN Security Council and Germany issued a statement calling Iran to negotiating tables regarding its nuclear program, Iran has responded that it will only hold talks with the IAEA.

Iran’s envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has made it clear that any talks with world leaders would not address Iran’s nuclear program, according to the website of al-Alam, a state-run television station.

Ali Ashgar Soltanieh’s comments came a day after a meeting of the United Nations Security Council near Frankfurt, where world powers pressured Iran to accept face to face talks regarding Iran’s nuclear plans.

Just three days ago:

Iran has prepared a new nuclear proposal and is ready to resume talks on its nuclear programme, according to media reports.
