Tehran, YJC. Candidate says that negotiations on the nuclear issue are not being held as they must.

Hassan Rohani appeared Monday in a TV program to discuss his presidential outlooks. He said "It is not just the Big Corruption suspects who must be put to trial. Those who brought about these economic circumstances must also answer to people.”

Rohani also provided comments on the foreign policy during his term as Secretary of the Naitonal Security Committee and said "At the time of my incumbency the number of our nuclear productions was 150. We tried to prove the US wrong. With good consultations of the Leader we gained the technology and the job was done.”

He further said "The former German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer says in his diaries ‘In Tehran we went told them that we wouldn’t let the case go before the Security Council’, while they had even promised us their right to veto against the US. That means turning threats into opportunities.”

He then criticized the level at which negotiations are currently held, saying "At our time the negotiations were held at the level of ministers and presidents, but it is to regret that currently they are held at the level of directors of five countries, and the only senior diplomat in the talks is the Iranian representative.”

In response to the show host saying that the critics believe the nuclear program came to a halt during his incumbency, Rohani said "The information they give you over the headphone is wrong. In the Sa’dabad negotiations no agreement was made, but an announcement was issued. Sayings on this are lies. We accomplished the technologies. The number of centrifuges reached the desired point in the winter of 2004. The heavy water and yellow cake projects were also carried out in 2004.”
