It is a political declaration and it is unjust.
Referring the case to the Security Council would be a lose-lose game, and we would prefer that this game does not happen. We see a win-win situation, that is where the EU and international community have confidence and the Islamic Republic of Iran reaches its legitimate right.
The Islamic Republic pays great cost to control and prevent transfer of narcotics to West.
We do not accept global nuclear 'apartheid' and scientific 'apartheid'.
If nuclear technology is useful for the United States, isn't it useful for other countries? We do not accept global nuclear and scientific 'apartheid'.
Russia's plan is at a stage of serious consideration, and negotiations on it are ongoing. Agreement between Tehran and Moscow has already been reached on certain points of Russia's proposals, in particular on increasing the number of participants in the project.
Any possible action by the board of governors (of the IAEA) in informing the UN security council about Iran's nuclear project in their February meeting, as I said before, will trigger the government to cut all its voluntary measures as per the law.
We should try to cool down the situation. We do not support any violence.
We believe the time of threats is over. There is still time for all the parties to reach a compromise, and I hope they use that time.
Nobody can remove a country from the map. This is a misunderstanding in Europe of what our president mentioned.
The time for using language of threats is over, it's time for negotiation. We express our readiness for negotiations based on justice and a comprehensive compromise. We want to peacefully solve the problem.
Nuclear weapons are not in Iran's defense doctrine.
We are planning our positions, also our readiness, to reach, to compromise, based on all parties' benefits.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is insisting to provide Asia with the oil it needs as a reliable and effective source of energy and will not use oil as a foreign-policy instrument.
Iran stresses restoration of its right to access nuclear technology and prefers to make use of internationally recognized mechanisms and benefit from its membership of the Non-Proliferation Treaty.
I predict that the irrational American view will not prevail in the Security Council.
