Iran’s former chief nuclear negotiator Hassan Rouhani said there is a consensus among all Iranian politicians about the country’s nuclear strategy. Speaking to media managers here in Tehran Monday night, Rouhani said that Iran’s nuclear strategy has been originally formed through expert discussions and under the supervision of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
He said both the former and present teams of nuclear negotiators sought to prevent referral of Iran’s nuclear dossier to the UN Security Council.
Rouhani, who used to serve as the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), described his country’s cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as positive, and expressed the hope that the remaining issues about Iran’s P1 and P2 centrifuges would be resolved, adding that once these ambiguities are removed, accusations against Tehran would lose their raison detre.
He said removal of the present ambiguities about Iran’s past activities would certainly reduce political pressures on the Islamic Republic.
