ImageTehran, Iran, Oct. 04 – Iran denied on Saturday that it would be willing to halt uranium enrichment for guaranteed nuclear fuel import.

Iran's chief envoy to the United Nations nuclear watchdog Ali-Asghar Soltaniyeh claimed that he was misquoted by Western news agencies earlier this week in saying that Tehran might be willing to halt enrichment if foreign states could guarantee it supplies of enriched uranium.

Soltaniyeh said on Saturday that he had been misunderstood on the subject, according to the state broadcasting corporation.

On Friday, Soltanieh told state television that even if there were countries that would provide Iran with power plants and nuclear fuel, "we would not be able to trust that they would fully meet their commitment".

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has accused Tehran of stonewalling its efforts to discover whether its nuclear projects have a military nature.

The United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1835 in late September, demanding that Tehran comply with previous sanctions resolutions ordering a halt to uranium enrichment.

Iran's Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani criticised the Resolution 1835, state media reported on Saturday.

"The Iranian nation will not retreat from its legitimate rights and will not heed pressures and bullying", Larijani, a former chief nuclear negotiator, said, adding that Tehran would give a "crushing response to any country wishing to violate the Islamic Republic's legal rights".
