IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 16, IRNA -- Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Tuesday that US, Russia and France sent a new letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which was mistranslated as “new proposal”.

He made the remark during a joint press conference with his visiting Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu.

Mottaki added that Tehran studies any kind of idea and proposal suggested, directly or indirectly, through the UN nuclear watchdog on Iran's peaceful nuclear activities.

He stressed that Tehran continues the natural process of its nuclear program while it listens to and studies all ideas and proposals in this respect.

“We have had negotiations with our Turkish friends as we had with Brazil, Japan and several other countries,” he said.

Tehran negotiates and exchanges views on nuclear fuel and considers fuel production inside the country as its own natural right, the Iranian foreign minister noted.
