Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi has reiterated that Iran will restart its uranium enrichment program if talks with European countries fail on Friday. He said:
"If there is no agreement and the negotiations (between Iran and European countries) collapse, then we have no choice but to restart our (uranium enrichment) activities. This is our right and nobody can deny our right." Kharrazi made the comments after talks in The Hague today with Netherlands Foreign Minister Bernard Bot.
Iran is due to renew talks in London on Friday with delegates from Britain, France and Germany who are pressing Iran to give up uranium enrichment in return for economic and other incentives.
Earlier today in India, UN secretary-General Kofi Annan said that Iran is negotiating in earnest with the West. He said any consideration of a military strike against Iran would be both unlikely and unwise.
