Tehran, Iran – A top Iranian cleric said Iran will soon join the international nuclear club, saying the suspension of uranium enrichment will last for four months only.

Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, chairman of the powerful Expediency Council, said at Friday sermon Iran “will be member of the club grouping countries that possess nuclear industry very soon,” the Iranian News Agency, IRNA, reported.

“Iran will not give up its legal and international right to possess peaceful nuclear technology,” he said, stressing Iran agreed to suspend uranium enrichment for “only a period of four months to assure the International Atomic Energy Agency of its peaceful nuclear activities.”

“After that period is passed, Iran will discuss seriously the implementation of its uranium enrichment program and the use of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes,” he said.

“Tehran does not want to produce nuclear arms but will not give up its right.”
