Iran rejects Pompeo’s remarks on enrichment right

.jwplayer{ display: inline-block; } TEHRAN, May 26 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi has dismissed the recent remarks by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Tehran must stop enriching uranium and import the material instead.

Speaking to Iranian media on Saturday, Ghasemi said, “we welcome Mr. Pompeo to the world of foreign policy and diplomacy. But I believe he has entered [the debate over Iran’s nuclear program] too late and is unaware of international developments.”

“For his information, Iran’s legal right to uranium enrichment has been established and Iran possesses its know-how. So I believe he is not updated on [recent] developments and is repeating words of his defeated predecessors,” he added.

“Such remarks are not understandable either for us or for the world,” Ghasemi said, advising Pompeo to about the issue.
