The following is an excerpt from an interview with Iranian Vice President Gholam-Reza Aqa-Zadeh who heads the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization:

Gholam-Reza Aqa-Zadeh Gholam-Reza Aqa-Zadeh: Nobody in Iran thinks of giving up (uranium) enrichment in return for what some media outlets call "reward" from the Europeans. Such an idea is utterly baseless. In Iran, the very idea that for any reward we would give up the very minimum (i.e. enrichment) doesn't exist. There's no such thing. The issue discussed in the talks or in the Paris agreements is what we deserve, of which we have been deprived for many years.
