Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Revolution, released a list of 11 non-negotiable points for the attention of the Iranian delegation at the 5+1 talks.

According to the information obtained by Voltaire Network, the Iranian delegation has already worked out with the "Westerners" the way of pushing Iran into their camp. [1] In a bid to restrain the dissemination of leaks, President Hassan Rohani made an appearance on Russia’s first television channel saying that it was not his intention to cut Russia out of the European gas market.

For his part, in the note he addressed to his country’s delegation, the Supreme Leader recalls the right of any State to engage in the research and development of civil nuclear energy. He therefore makes it clear that his country’s needs in terms of producing fuel for the Bushehr nuclear power plant are 190,000 SWU (separative work units). However, Westerners demand that Iran should reduce its current enrichment capacity, which is 20 times lower than the required amount. In addition, the Guide is opposed to the closure of the research facility at Fordo.

Since 2005, the West has accused Iran of being in a position to make a nuclear bomb "within three months" (sic). On its side, Iran recalls that it dismantled its nuclear weapons program during the war imposed by Iraq, following a fatwa issued by Imam Khomeini prohibiting the manufacture, possession and use of weapons of mass destruction [2]
