Tehran, Dec 26, IRNA-Iran's Government Spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham said on Monday that Russia as well as other world countries can participate in Iran's peaceful nuclear program within the framework of Iran's proclaimed principles.
Making the remark at a press conference attended by both domestic and foreign correspondents, he reiterated that the Iranian government has clarified its position on the issue for several times.
He said Iran's views are based on three principles of conducting uranium enrichment inside the country, setting up an atmosphere of trust and providing objective guarantees to the international community on the peaceful nature of enrichment activities in accordance with internationally-recognized regulations.
He said Iran has already announced the domain of its nuclear activities as a commercial one in which foreign investments would be welcomed.
As for Iran's legal action against the US in the International Court of Justice in the Hague regarding confiscation of billions of dollars worth of Iran's assets in America, he said the new government is following up the issue.
He further noted that the Americans, given their inherent characteristic of evading their commitments and taking abnormal measures, are now trying to influence the court in order not to restore Iranians' rights.
According to the spokesman, several top legal experts were working at the Presidential Office to give necessary legal advice on the issue.
Elham said the government would undoubtedly never allow the rights of the Iranian nation to be violated by the US.
