Iran wants a nuclear meeting with the UN

Ali Akbar Salehi

Iran's Foreign Minister says his country expects to continue talks regarding its nuclear activities with the UN.

Ali Akbar Salehi made the comments to reporters following his speech to the UN Conference on Disarmament taking place in Geneva.

Mr. Salehi told those attending the meeting that the danger of nuclear weapons would be enormously increased when some countries feel free to threaten others, including non-nuclear weapon states.

"There are two alternatives in dealing with Iranian peaceful nuclear programme. One way is engagement, cooperation and interaction and the other is confrontation and conflict. Iran, confident of the peaceful nature of its nuclear program, has always insisted on the first alternative."

The U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, which last week was in Iran to verify whether the country was developing a weaponized nuclear program, said it was "disappointing" that Iran would not allow a visit to a facility.
