Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman said today that Iran would not negotiate over its rights to enrich uranium. Mohammad Hosseini said that uranium enrichment was allowed under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). The UN Security Council had demanded the suspension of the enrichment program.
President Ahmadinejad is expected to announce tomorrow the installation and operation of 3,000 centrifuges at Natanz.
Hosseini also warned that the Iranian military is ready to take action against any military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
