TEHRAN – Iran on Thursday dismissed demands by British Prime Minister Tony Blair and French President Jacques Chirac that it should renounce uranium enrichment.

“We will not renounce our right,” said foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi, quoted by official media.

“These declarations are contrary to the discussions between Iran and the European Union,” he added.

“We are now waiting for the suggestions of the Europeans including the acknowledgment of the right of Iran to enrich uranium,” he said.

Chirac and Blair agreed in talks in Paris on Tuesday to win a “complete and entire renunciation” from Iran of its enrichment activities, according to French officials.

In exchange for Iranian guarantees about the peaceful nature of its nuclear programme, Britain, France and Germany said they will make suggestions to Iran for a nuclear cooperation deal by the end of July.
