Iran will not forswear nuclear rights: Rouhani

Tehran will continue its peaceful nuclear activities under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), says Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani.

Tehran will follow all international regulations over its nuclear energy program, but will not accept any discrimination in that regard and will not give up its nuclear rights, said Rouhani in a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Thursday.

Iran is determined to reach a comprehensive nuclear deal with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, stressed the Iranian president.

Rouhani underscored Tehran’s readiness to have constructive interaction with the world in various areas, including economy, politics, and security issues.

I hereby announce that one of the theoretical and practical priorities of my government is constructive engagement with the world, he stated.

He also described the Davos summit as a good opportunity to exchange views on the better management of world affairs.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting 2014 is held from January 22 to 25, with the theme of “The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business.”

This year’s annual summit aims to develop the insights, initiatives and actions necessary to respond to current and emerging challenges.

The WEF is an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.
