The SNSC said that "Sharq Persian daily" has made a mistake in carrying an interview with the television by Secretary of SNSC Hassan Rowhani saying that no negotiations will be held with the big three European states.
Iran signed Tehran Declaration with foreign ministers of France, ritain and Germany on October 21, 2003 according to which the three European partners undertook to supply Iran with nuclear technology in return for Iranian decision to sign up to additional protocol to Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) which granted intrusive inspection of nuclear sites by inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Iran is critical of the stance taken by the three European partners ahead of the meeting of IAEA Board of Governors in mid June which drafted a resolution which ignored Iran's full cooperation with the international watchdog.
The context of the draft resolution was totally different from that of the Tehran Declaration and Iran protested to the three big European states terming the draft inconsistent with former agreement.
