TEHRAN, YJC. Ali Bagheri says that the suspension of uranium enrichment during the Reform administration came with no offers from the European side.

Ali Bagheri said "In the course of Sadabad-Paris negotiations actions were taken in opposition to the Supreme Leader’s guidelines, which is of course what the contemporary Secretary of the National Security Council has said.”

Undersecretary of the National Security Council added "Some officials have lately said that the suspension of the nuclear energy was by written permission from the Leader. This issue needs assessment and opinions by those who have been engaged in the matter.”

Bagheri pointed out that the Iranian nuclear issue was triggered in 81, adding "On August 06, 2003 the UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs writes to Iran to suspend nuclear activities. Meanwhile the contemporary president has a meeting with ElBaradei, [saying] that we accept the Additional Protocol, and on August 26, Iran officially announces readiness for negotiations on the Additional Protocol.”

"After that, these three European countries motivate the Resolution against Iran and demand Iran to accept the Additional Protocol and suspend all its nuclear activities,” he further stated.

"After a while,” he said "the three European countries visit Tehran, which paves the way for a meeting in September 2003.”

Regarding the Sadabad Agreement, Bagheri said that both sides made offers, Iran accepting to suspend all nuclear activities, which is tantamount to saying that the other side made no offers at all.
