ISTANBUL, Jan 21 (Reuters) – Iran would refuse to discuss any suspension of its uranium enrichment activities during talks with six world powers over its nuclear programme that opened in Istanbul on Friday, a senior Iranian official said.

“We will not allow any talks linked to freezing or suspending of Iran’s enrichment activities to be discussed at the meeting in Istanbul,” Massoud Zohrevand, a senior official in the Iranian delegation said.

“So far this issue has not been discussed, has not been raised or mentioned by the other party,” Zohrevand said, adding, “Iran’s nuclear rights cannot be discussed.” (Reporting by Parisa Hafezi; Writing by Simon Cameron-Moore)
