Khamenei says Tehran will not give access to nuclear scientists
Iran, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China have until June 30 to reach a comprehensive agreement.
ANKARA – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday said Tehran will not accept “unreasonable demands” by the six major powers that are in talks with the Islamic republic to resolve its over a decade-old nuclear standoff.
“We will never yield to pressure…we will not accept unreasonable demands…Iran will not give access to its (nuclear) scientists,” Khamenei said according to the state TV.
Iran, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China reached a tentative framework deal on April 2 in Lausanne, Switzerland. They have a June 30 deadline to arrive at a comprehensive agreement.
“I am hearing that our enemies want to drag Iran into war…Our answer to any military action will be very tough,” he added.
Diplomats have been pushing to iron out details of a final agreement in Vienna without announcing any major breakthrough as a self-imposed deadline for a deal at the end of June is drawing nearer.
