prezThe Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said in a press meet on Monday that he will not be launching an initiative to halt the uranium enrichment nor is he willing to negotiate over the nation’s nuclear rights with anyone.

However, he is more than willing to sit in a talk with the leading world powers and discuss issues over “global challenges.” On that note the president invited representatives from among the congregation of the six world powers (US included), to the nation capital Tehran.

He is supposed to have told the media persons who were appearing for the news conference that all talks on the nuclear issue is “finished.”

The Iranian president’s statements has come on heels of the warnings of a “stalemate” by the UN nuclear council. According to reports, the members of the International Atomic Energy Agency are said to have embarked on their meetings in Vienna, the possible outcome of which could be leading to the setting up of the stage for some hard hitting sanctions to be imposed on Iran.

The president also stated that his cabinet will also be presenting a host of proposals that could be discussed amidst the five permanent members of the UN Security Council. However, he is not willing take heed of any set deadlines that might be figured for such talks. Among other things, he said, that the talks would seek to “identify challenges facing humanity… and resolve global concerns.”

He is reported to have stated, “We continue our work within the framework of global regulations and in close interaction with the International Atomic Energy Agency… we will never negotiate over obvious rights of the Iranian nation.”
