The President of Iran said the country is ready to discuss its nuclear projects, but without the pressure from Western countries. In a recent interview, former Iranian Diplomat Amir Mousavi issued the threat that Iran could present great danger to Western nations if the U.S. doesn’t agree with their nuclear deal conditions.
He stated if the U.S. follows its commitments, Iran would return to the deal. However, if the U.S. continued to procrastinate, Iran would continue to escalate the situation.
“Iran will simply be stronger as long as they delay their return,” said Mousavi of the U.S. “By now, we have seen that from 3.5 percent enrichment Iran reached 20 percent, and now 60 percent and maybe it will reach 90 percent.”
Mousavi claimed a nuclear bomb isn’t something that is “part of Iran’s plans.” Although, he warned any technological progress in the country would be detrimental to the West.
This comes as Iran’s president on Sunday, accused the U.S. and EU of coercive talks, saying they’re more interested in putting pressure on the nation.
