"However, according to the country's relevant officials, absolute need of the country stands at 190,000 SWUs, he said."
Tehran, July 9 - Iranian government said Tuesday that Tehran will never strike a deal with the six world powers which ignores or undermines Iran's rights.

We do not accept to reach a solution at all costs as we insist on our rights, Xinhua quoted Foreign Minister Mohammad- Javad Zarif as saying. We are trying to find an acceptable, logical and long-term solution.

I hope the other side will be ready to see the realities, take our word seriously and accept that the Iranian nation has never withdrawn under pressure.

He added if both sides come to a mutual understanding, reaching a solution would be possible.

Zarif's remarks came after Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted as saying Tuesday that Iran needed 190,000 separative work units (SWUs) for uranium enrichment.

Enrichment capacity of the Islamic republic is one of the major differences between Iran and the West, Khamenei said, adding that they seek to make Iran accept 10,000 SWUs, which means the products of 10,000 centrifuges of older type that we already have.

However, according to the country's relevant officials, absolute need of the country stands at 190,000 SWUs, he said.

On Tuesday, head of Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Salehi told semi-official ISNA news agency that 190,000 SWUs do not necessarily mean 190,000 centrifuges.
