Luxembourgˈs FM reaffirms Iranˈs right to enrich uranium

Berlin, May 31, IRNA — Luxembourgˈs Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn
reiterated Tehranˈs right to enrich uranium ahead of his four-day visit
to Iran, the Luxembourg-based daily Tageblatt reported Saturday.
 Luxemburg has ˈalways stressed Iranˈs right to enrich uranium for peaceful

purposes,ˈ said Asselborn who is to embark Sunday on an official visit to

Iran where he is to hold talks with President Hassan Rohani, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Asselborn whose country is currently a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, expressed hope that a settlement of the nuclear dispute between Iran and six world powers could be reached by July 20 when the six-month interim accord ends.

He said a final nuclear agreement could also boost trade ties between Iran and Luxembourg, pointing to the ˈenormous economic potentialsˈ of the Islamic Republic.

Asselborn has been among a number high-ranking European officials who have visited Iran since the moderate Rohani government took office in summer 2013.
