ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has said that no one has the right to ask Iran to halt the uranium enrichment component of its nuclear program. 

Salehi made the remarks at a news conference on Sunday on the sidelines of an African Union summit in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa when asked whether or not Iran would halt its nuclear enrichment activities if the West offers incentives.

“We have the legal right to uranium enrichment, and we pursue it according to the NPT (nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty). No one has the right to ask us to halt uranium enrichment,” Salehi stated. 

Asked if the visit by International Atomic Energy Agency delegation that arrived in Tehran on Sunday sends a message to the West, Salehi said, “Iran has always fulfilled its commitments to the NPT, and we have nothing to hide. Iran has already answered the agency’s questions.” 

Syria must be given enough time to implement reforms 

In reply to a question about Tehran’s stance toward the developments occurring in Syria, the Iranian foreign minister said, “Our stance in this regard is completely transparent and clear, and we have always mentioned it. (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad has promised to hold a referendum on the constitution” and to allow different political parties to carry out their activities in the country freely. 

“However, the question is why certain countries are trying to prevent the implementation of the reforms and do not give them (the Syrian officials) enough time,” he added.  

Salehi also said, “We should give Syria time to carry out reforms by itself. If an unexpected incident takes place in Syria, no one can predict its repercussions. Such an incident may create conflicts among the people. We should give the Syrian people and government time to implement the reforms themselves.” 

Iran is not Iraq 

Asked whether or not Iran is concerned that it may experience the same fate as Iraq, he stated, “Iran is a powerful country and is very different from Iraq. Other sides are aware of this issue. If they had been able to (attack Iran), they would have already done so.” 

Iran oil embargo not a great problem 

The foreign minister also answered a question about Iran’s plans to deal with the recent sanctions on its oil industry, saying that the Islamic Republic has many customers for its oil and the oil embargo is not a “great problem” for the country.
