ImageTehran, Iran, May 15 – Iran’s Foreign Ministry has warned the United States to recognise Tehran's nuclear ambitions and not to create an “unwise political atmosphere”, state media reported on Wednesday.
 
Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said, "The U.S. government had better pay attention to realities instead of making pre-judgments". His remarks were carried by the official news agency IRNA.

In relation to a new package offered to Tehran by the world's major powers in return for a halt to its uranium enrichment activities, Hosseini said, "We have not received any package from the group yet".
 
The Foreign Ministry spokesman added, "Iran's inalienable rights to use peaceful nuclear energy such as enrichment and producing fuel are not negotiable".
 
The comments pour cold water on the new incentives package being offered to Tehran by the UN Security Council's Five Permanent Members and Germany. Uranium enrichment and the production of nuclear fuel are seen as integral parts in the process of acquiring a nuclear weapon.
