Saturday, October 20, 2007

Iran's top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani has warned the West against imposing further sanctions on his country over its nuclear program.

"Sanctions will lead to further hostility between the two sides," Larijani said in an interview with the German journal, Focus.
If the United Nations makes an unreasonable decision against us, we will definitely react to it," he continued.

"The west may not be happy about it, but we have attained uranium enrichment technology and that is a fact," he said, adding his country will not back down from its entitlement to peaceful nuclear technology.

According to information Focus provided from the interview, Larijani did not rule out the possibility of suspending Iran's uranium enrichment activities.
