|Iran will not ‘dismantle’ its nuclear infrastructure: official||
TEHRAN – Iran is not going to “dismantle” its nuclear infrastructure, an Iranian nuclear negotiator said on Sunday.
“It is natural that the agreement is interpreted in different ways, but we have to be careful and prevent unilateral and differing interpretations,” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said in a televised interview, referring to U.S. President Barack Obama’s statement on the agreement to start the implementation of the Geneva nuclear deal.
“We understand Mr. Obama’s problems in Congress, and we do not want to say something that puts him in trouble,” Araqchi said, but added that the use of the word “dismantle” by Obama was not appropriate.
Part of Obama’s statement on Sunday read, "Beginning January 20th, Iran will for the first time start eliminating its stockpile of higher levels of enriched uranium and dismantling some of the infrastructure that makes such enrichment possible.”
