Tehran, May 27 (IANS) The Iranian Foreign Ministry has rejected remarks by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Tehran must stop enriching uranium and import the material instead.

“We welcome Pompeo to the world of foreign policy and diplomacy. But I believe he is unaware of international developments,” ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Saturday.

Qasemi asserted Iran’s “legal right” to uranium enrichment, reports Xinhua news agency.

“Iran’s legal right to uranium enrichment has been established and Iran possesses its know-how. So I believe he is not updated on developments and is repeating words of his defeated predecessors,” the Iranian spokesman noted.

“Such remarks are not understandable either to us or to the world.”
