Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency, says his country is ready to suspend 20 percent enrichment if Western countries specially United States cancel their unilateral sanctions against Iran. The recent sanctions by United States have restricted Iran from selling oil to European and Eastern Asian countries. These sanctions also dropped the value of Iran’s Rial against U.S. Dollar.
Soltanieh announced in the most recent session between Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, Iran has offered the other side to halt its 20 percent enrichment if Europeans and United States cancel all the sanctions.
However it seems Western side is not happy with this offer and they might refuse it, because Iran was already under sanctions before reaching to 20 percent enrichment. But this offer has made Iranians happy.
Iran’s nuclear program has raised many concerns in the Middle East region. Because of the current threats posed by Iran’s nuclear program, Israel wants to take a military action against Iran to smash all the nuclear facilities.
