Iran's top legislator Ali Larijani also addressed the conference of Speakers of Parliament. He told attendees Iran will pursue nuclear activities for peaceful purposes despite what he called "illegal and inhuman" sanctions.

Larijani reiterated that Tehran seeks to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes within the framework of the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. He added that Iran is always open to "reasonable solutions" to its nuclear issue, including "meaningful negotiations."

He praised a recent nuclear fuel swap agreement among Iran, Turkey and Brazil, and condemned a rejection to the agreement by the United States. Under the agreement, Iran will ship most of its low-enriched uranium to Turkey in exchange for the 20 percent uranium fuel needed for its reactor.
