The leader of Tehran's Friday Prayers has repeated Iran's expressed readiness to halt domestic uranium enrichment.

Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani, also member of the country's Assembly of Experts, says his nation will do so if it is provided with the 3.5 percent enriched uranium it requires for a research reactor.

He also urges world powers to stop opposing Iran, and let the country continue its nuclear activities under international supervision.

Mohammad Emami Kashani, Iranian Assembly of Experts Member, said, "Come and supervise all of our nuclear activities. Iran has shown its good intentions before, and is still proving them. These lies and violations of rules will not take you anywhere, and will not bring you any results from now on, either."

Iran's Atomic Energy Organization also says the country would be ready to negotiate with world powers over a fuel swap in the next few days.

In May, Turkey and Brazil brokered a deal under which Iran agreed to send 12-hundred kilograms of low-enriched uranium to Turkey, in order to be supplied at a later date with high-enriched uranium for the Tehran reactor from Russia and France.

The European Union adopted new sanctions against Iran this week, part of the international community's efforts to halt the country's contentious nuclear program.
