‘Iranians won’t give up nuke program, it’s matter of national pride’ | RT

Iran is hoping to convince world powers its nuclear programme serves a peaceful purpose and isn’t about making bombs. A new round of talks has begun in Baghdad – with further pressure on Tehran to stop higher-grade uranium enrichment which it’s feared could be put to military use. Iran has already tried to ease worsening relations, by tentatively agreeing to new UN inspections of sites which are suspected of involvement in atomic weapons development.

But, Washington says there’ll be no let-up in the heat on Tehran. Fresh sanctions are expected to hit in just over a month, targeting the country’s oil and nuclear sectors, as well as international trade links. Political analyst Chris Bambery says Iran’s nuclear programme has become a matter of national pride for its people – which they’ll not give up.
