Surprised? From Reuters, with thanks to JS:
TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran has reiterated it is only prepared to freeze its uranium enrichment activities for a few months and will not, as the EU and Washington want, permanently mothball facilities which could make atomic bombs.
The comments, made by Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator on Tuesday, were a further blow to European Union efforts to persuade Tehran to scrap enrichment for good and were likely to fuel U.S. concerns that Iran secretly plans to produce nuclear weapons….
Rohani said the world had nothing to fear from Iran’s nuclear facilities. “If we had wanted to make a nuclear bomb we would have made one in the last 20 years,” he said.
