Iran will never suspend nuclear program

Stop Fundamentalism – Reuters reported that Iran has no intention to suspend its nuclear program not even as an outcome of any possible future talks, Iran’s ambassay in Vienna announced Friday.

The Iranian Embassy in Vienna said Tehran’s deputy nuclear negotiator had been misquoted in a German translation of a speech he gave on Thursday that raised the possibility of Iran stopping uranium enrichment as a result of negotiations.

"Iran considers a suspension of uranium enrichment neither as a precondition for talks nor as a result of such talks," Javad Vaeedi told an Austrian think-tank, according to a corrected text of his speech provided by the embassy.

A German-language text from the embassy distributed after the speech mistranslated Vaeedi to say: "Iran considers a suspension of uranium enrichment not as a precondition for talks, rather in the best case as a result of talks."

An embassy spokesman said: "The translation error was ours." No English text was provided and a running oral translation of the speech was drowned out by applause at the pro-Iranian think tank. Iranian officials were not available after the address.

Tehran has reportedly said it will reply to the West’s proposals by August 22 but the 5+1 countries want the answer by mid-July.
