The Secretary of the Human Rights Staff of the Islamic Republic of Iran Mohammadjavad Larijani who was speaking in a talk show on TV channel 2 pointed to the Iran-Six Majors talks and said "We may need to take the enrichment to 40 percent for peaceful nuclear applications.”
Further stating that Iran’s uranium enrichment within the NPT is not clearly defined, Larijani said "Today we may need 20-percent uranium for the Tehran reactor, but then in the future our needs for peaceful applications may change to 40 percent.”
He added that Iran must follow higher levels of enrichment within the Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Larijani exclaimed "Iran is a member of the NPT while the membership has brought only the downsides and no benefits. What goddamn treaty is this that has no benefit for our nation?”
