Iran pledged, October last, to give up uranium enrichment works. It is not good on its word, says information that has reached Washington, D.C., warned Mr. Bolton.
On the other hand, Iran has every right to implement a civil-oriented nuclear programme, Kamal Kharazi, its Minister of Foreign Affairs, stressed to the media before an international conference in Rome.
Iran is determined to carry on R&D on all civil-oriented nuclear technologies, and insists on its lawful right to do so. Teheran is willing to assist IAEA inspectors as they check the Iranian nuclear programme, added Dr. Kharazi.
