‘No incentive will make Iran drop nuclear fuel programme’

No incentive would make Iran drop its nuclear fuel programme, the spokesman for Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) said on Saturday.

“Even if the West provided us with all economic, political and security incentives, Iran would not drop its nuclear fuel programme,” Ali Aqamohammadi told ISNA news agency.

The spokesman was referring to a proposal by the European Union trio of Britain, France and Germany, which reportedly offered Teheran cooperation in providing nuclear power besides a package of economic and political incentives.

“Maintaining nuclear fuel technology is our red line which will also determine whether to continue the talks or not,” the spokesman warned.
