Khatami says dialogue only solution to nuclear standoff
TEHRAN (AFP) Oct 20, 2004
Iran is ready to cooperate fully with the international community over its nuclear programme provided its "rights" are respected and believes dialogue is the only solution, President Mohammad Khatami said Wednesday.
"We demand respect for our rights to have nuclear technology for civilian use and that no-one tries to deprive us of this," Khatami said after a cabinet meeting.
"We are ready to cooperate and believe that dialogue and negotiation are the only ways to reach an understanding," he said.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
