Iran will suspend uranium enrichment within next few days: Official

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said on Sunday that Iran will suspend uranium enrichment within the next few days, IRNA reported from Tehran.

The uranium enrichment plant has been set up to produce fuel for Bushehr nuclear power plant.

"Iran will announce its decision to sign the additional protocol to non-proliferation treaty (NPT) within the next few days," he told reporters in his weekly briefing.

He said that Iran has provided the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) with full details of national nuclear program and extensive cooperation is going on with the specialized agency to prove the futility of the propaganda against Iranian nuclear program.

Those who had pinned hope on mobilizing the international community against Iranian nuclear program have been disappointed with Iran's transparent cooperation with the agency.

Absence of logic on the part of those orchestrating propaganda campaign against Iran's national program surface more and more every day when they see themselves disarmed by the transparent action taken by Iranian officials to sign the protocol.

The enemies of the Iranian nation and the national economic development see themselves frustrated to an extent that they say publicly that Iran may use the non-weapon grade fuel for producing nuclear arms indicating that they forget logic when they see that Iran's transparency has left no room for their malicious goals.

Iran has decided to generate 8,000 megawatts electricity from nuclear power plants by the year 2015. Iran's uranium enrichment plant is designed to produce non-weapon grade fuel in line with the IAEA safeguards.
