Amid contradicting reports that an Iranian-Russian “solution” to the nuclear issue had been reached, Iran said that there was “no reason” to back down from its dispute, largely with the U.S. and her few allies, over its nuclear (weapons) program.
Ali Hosseini-Tash, one of Iran’s nuclear negotiators, was quoted by state television as saying, “Iran has predicted and studied the consequences of any possible Security Council decision. There is no reason for Iran to retreat. Any possible Security Council resolution against Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities will not have any legal or rational foundations. It is not the last loop in the chain of decisions, especially when the U.S. and the West are not sure of an agreement among Security Council members.”
