Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi 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 Fars News Agency on Saturday, Qassemi 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,” Qassemi said, advising Pompeo to read more about the issue.
