TEHRAN - Iranian President Mohammad Khatami on Tuesday categorically rejected the European demand of unlimited suspension of uranium enrichment.

"The Iranian nation must not be deprived of its rights on nuclear technology," Khatami told reporters.

Even so, he expressed optimism that the nuclear talks with the European Union (EU) would not come to a negative end.

"I am optimistic, for both sides are showing flexibility," Khatami said.

Iran and the EU will hold another round of nuclear negotiation in Paris this Friday after two rounds of fruitless talks in Vienna in late October.

The European trio of France, Germany and Britain has offered to supply Iran with necessary nuclear technology and equipments, including a light-water reactor, in return for Tehran's unlimited suspension of uranium enrichment.

Iran at first termed the proposal as "unacceptable" but softened its stance later.

However, Iranian Supreme Leader Seyed Ali Khamenei has said that unlimited suspension of enrichment was an "illogical demand" and Iran would reject it.

Iranian government spokesman Abdollah Ramezanzadeh said on Monday that Iran was optimistic about the outcome of the nuclear talks while all negative consequences have also been taken into cautious account.
