Iran says no talks on ‘nuclear dossier’ at Istanbul

-

AFP: Iran will not talk on its “nuclear dossier” at the Istanbul talks with world powers, atomic chief Ali Akbar Salehi said in comments published Wednesday, reiterating Tehran’s long-standing policy.

TEHRAN, January 12, 2011 (AFP) – Iran will not talk on its “nuclear dossier” at the Istanbul talks with world powers, atomic chief Ali Akbar Salehi said in comments published Wednesday, reiterating Tehran’s long-standing policy.

“We will absolutely not recognise the negotiation if the other side wants to negotiate on the issue of the nuclear dossier,” Salehi said in an interview with state-run Iran newspaper.

“The technical and legal aspects of any country’s nuclear issues can be discussed only with the International Atomic Energy Agency and the agency, based on international rules and regulations, is the only authority to judge the member states’ issues,” Salehi added.

“If we consider this as the principle… then discussing the issue, named (Iran) nuclear issue, from our point of view is a dossier fabricated by the West and discussing it with the five-plus-one about this is meaningless,” said Salehi, who oversees Tehran’s nuclear programme.

Top Iranian officials, including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has maintained that Tehran’s nuclear dossier is a “closed file.”
