TEHRAN, Dec 21 (AFP) – Iran will insist on the right to enrich uranium on its own soil during key talks that opened in Vienna on Wednesday with the European Union, Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki said.

“It is normal when we talk about enrichment for manufacturing nuclear fuel, it means having enrichment and the nuclear fuel cycle on our own territory,” Mottaki told reporters.

The statement was made as Iran and the European Union opened a key meeting in Vienna, with diplomats warning hopes are slim for getting Tehran to abandon making the nuclear fuel the West says could be used to manufacture atomic bombs.
