Iran will not consider proposals by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), developed by Russia, France and the United States, which call on Tehran to suspend its research reactor, the ISNA news agency reported.
"We will not consider proposals calling for suspension of the Tehran research reactor. Such proposals... are unacceptable to us," ISNA quoted ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying.
Russia, the United States and France recently sent the IAEA chief a letter to explain their governments' position following Iran's statements that it had started to produce 20%-enriched uranium.
