Tehran, Sept 20, IRNA-Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani said in Tehran on Tuesday that Iran is ready for talks with the EU3 but the talks which will not fall within framework of intimidation.
"I can not understand talks within framework of intimidation; that you ask to come to the negotiation table, but do threaten, is not negotiations, rather is a directive," said Larijani in an address to a press conference concurrent with the meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) Board of Governors in Vienna, Austria.
Larijani stressed there is no room for threats in talks and the three European states (Britain, France and Germany) should in talks with Iran play their role well.
Having noticed former behaviors of the three European states, Iranian nation has come to the conclusion that the states do not have necessary ability to settle the issue, said Larijani.
He said that unfortunately, Europe has in the corridor of talks with Iran over the past two years followed intimidating Iranian nation.
Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Larijani said that the Iranian delegation had in talks with the EU3 foreign ministers and Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana in New York said continuation of the talks would be helpful.
He said it will be a good chance for the European states to show their ability on the international scene well.
He added that there is no legal and judicial foundation for referral of Iran's nuclear case to the UN Security Council.
He stressed that in case of referral of Iran's case to the UN Security Council, Tehran would undoubtedly quit the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and its safeguards and would not hesitate launching the enrichment project.
