Iran says no offer could stop it enriching uranium


Iran is willing to hold nuclear talks but its atomic advances have “no brake and no reverse gear” according to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Amid fears it is developing nuclear weapons, world powers want Tehran to stop enriching uranium. But when asked whether it could be offered any incentive to do so, Iran’s president answered a reporter with just one word: “No.”

It comes the day after a warning from the IAEA. The head of the UN’s atomic watchdog, Yukiya Amano, said it had received new evidence of possible military dimensions to Iran’s nuclear work.

That contradicts the Islamic Republic’s insistence that its atomic activities are for purely peaceful purposes.
