AN Iranian nuclear official said today that Tehran was ready to provide guarantees that its enrichment programs would never be used for military purposes.
Hossein Moussavian, an aide to the head of Iran's nuclear program, Hassan Rohani, told state television that Tehran's pursuit of enrichment has been the main concern of its European partners.
"The Europeans know that if Iran masters the technology for enrichment it has a potential (military) nuclear capability and that will change the (political) equation" in the region, he said.
But Mr Moussavian said that Iran was prepared to guarantee that enrichment would not be used for military purposes.
