Zarif slams US Undersecretary of State, says nuclear program a reality
US officials should understand that Iran's nuclear program is a reality, Zarif said Wednesday at the joint press conference.
Zarif slammed a recent statement made by US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman at a meeting of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee claiming that the Geneva deal stalled because of Iran’s nuclear program.
"Iran’s nuclear technology is non-negotiable and US officials’ statements about Iranian nuclear facilities are invalid," said Zarif.
Reiterating the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program Zarif added: “Even if some of these words are made only for their domestic use, they have to stop speaking like they want to find a solution. Making such comments is not effective or useful.”
Zarif also said that US President Barack Obama conceded that the US' demands from Iran are unattainable; thus, they come to terms with Iran for a sustainable conclusive solution.Last Mod: 06 Şubat 2014, 10:04
