Swiss paper: Iran not to compromise N. rights

TEHRAN (FNA)- Swiss newspaper, Geneva Tribune, in a recently published article underlined that Iran will not succumb to the western pressures to compromise its nuclear right, while it is resolved to start serious talks with the world powers under its new administration.

The paper reminded that Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has emphasized that he would start serious talks with big powers to resolve Iran’s nuclear issue without compromising the country’s legitimate rights.

The paper also underlined the vital role of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif whose experiences in diplomatic fields will help Tehran find a win-win solution to the standoff on its peaceful nuclear program.

Iran says its nuclear program is a peaceful drive to produce electricity so that the world’s fourth-largest crude exporter can sell more of its oil and gas abroad. Tehran also stresses that the country is pursuing a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

The US and its western allies allege that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program while they have never presented corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations against the Islamic Republic.

Iran is under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West’s calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment, saying the demand is politically tainted and illogical.

Iran has so far ruled out halting or limiting its nuclear work in exchange for trade and other incentives, saying that renouncing its rights under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) would encourage the world powers to put further pressure on the country and would not lead to a change in the West’s hardline stance on Tehran.
