No Decision Made on Formation of Nuclear Consortium Yet

A0223776.jpgTEHERAN (Fars News Agency)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Mohammad Ali Hoseini said that Tehran has not yet made any decisions about the formation of a nuclear consortium or about inviting foreign partners to join the Islamic Republic’s enrichment plans and activities.

According to a statement released by the Foreign Ministry’s Information and Press Bureau, Hoseini also added that President Ahmadinejad last year raised the idea of a plan for the partnership of the governmental and private companies of other countries in Iran’s enrichment activities while he was addressing the 60th meeting of the United Nations General Assembly.

“The issue has also been put forward during the recent talks between Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani and EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana, where the two sides referred to the measure as a proper solution which can assure the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear activities and plans,” the diplomat concluded.
