Official: Iran Needs Objective Assurances for N. Fuel Swap.
"As regards the fuel swap, our conditions have remained unchanged, that is we give 3.5%-enriched uranium and receive 20%-enriched fuel," Salehi said on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting here in Tehran on Sunday.He also said that western suppliers sought to impose a series of conditions on Tehran, although Iran has not accepted such demands."And receiving objective assurances has been our condition" for the nuclear fuel swap," the nuclear official added.Asked about Iran's fresh proposals for supplying nuclear fuel for its Tehran research reactor, Salehi mentioned, "Different countries have raised some proposals and we are currently studying these proposals. We plan to discuss their details in our talks with the countries (that have offered them).""Our intention of swapping nuclear fuel is preparing a ground for the western countries which are seeking to get out of this issue with a good face but after we receive objective assurances," he stressed.
