We can not be engaged with talks based on intimidation. The Europeans ask us to come to the negotiation table, but they threaten at the same time, which is not the atmosphere of negotiations, but of dictation.
It would be a disgrace to condemn with sanctions a country for peaceful research. Surely the world would not accept such an action. But if this kind of mistake happens, the consequences of the wrong actions will return back to those who put Iran under pressure.
We still advise [the EU countries] to pursue this issue through constructive and serious negotiations. The doors for negotiations are still open. We consider a referral to the UN Security Council or a report to the Security Council to be the end of diplomacy and this is not positive.
If the case was referred or reported to the Security Council, we will have to restart all voluntarily suspended work and stop the implementation of the additional protocol (of the nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty).
