Iran Ready Talks About Nuclear

Astana - Iran is ready to dialogue with six countries on Iranian nuclear issue, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in Astana on Tuesday (06/14/2011). In a meeting with Chinese President Hu Jintao, Ahmadinejad said Iran was willing to solve the Iranian nuclear issue through dialogue and cooperation, including with China.Six countries comprising the five permanent members of the Security Council (BOC) United Nations (UN) and Germany. Ahmadinejad was invited to Astana to attend the summit of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which opened on Wednesday (06/15/2011). Hu Jintao welcomed Ahmadinejad's statement. He agreed six-party talks is the best way to guarantee Iran's right to peaceful use of nuclear energy, on the eve of a meeting of Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Kazakhstan. Hu told Ahmadinejad that Iran should "take substantial steps" to build trust and "encourage the process of talks", Xinhua news agency said. "This is not just for the sake of Iran, but also conducive to peace and stability situation in the Middle East generally," said Hu. Last week China joined Western countries to tell Iran that "consistent failure" to meet its UN resolution was "deepening concern" against possible military dimension to its nuclear program. The statement was issued after Iran said it would triple production of high-grade uranium and move it to an underground bunker protected from possible U.S. or Israeli air strikes.
