TEHRAN (FNA)- Senior Iranian parliamentary sources revealed on Saturday that the Swiss envoy to Tehran has quoted US President Barack Obama as acknowledging Iran's nuclear rights.
Swiss Ambassador to Tehran Livia Leu Agosti attended a meeting with senior Iranian foreign ministry officials a few days ago to submit a letter from the US president to Tehran leaders.
Vice-Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi told FNA that during the meeting, Agosti had told the Iranian officials that President Barack Obama recognizes Iran's right of access and use of the nuclear technology.
"There are a couple of points with regard to this (US) message (to Iran)," Ebrahimi said and added, "Firstly, during the session to submit the message, the Swiss ambassador to Tehran quoted the US president as saying that 'we (the US) recognize your nuclear rights'."
As regards the second issue, the lawmaker said that the Swiss diplomat had also quoted Obama as saying that "I didn't want to impose sanctions on your central bank but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision."
Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said on Sunday that Iran has received a US message regarding the Strait of Hormoz via three different channels.
"The US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice had handed a letter to Iran's Ambassador to the UN Mohammad Khazayee; the Swiss Ambassador to Tehran (Livia Leu Agosti) also conveyed the same thing; and Iraqi President Jalal Talabani delivered the same message to Iranian officials," he said last Sunday.

Sanctions to vanish in exchange for ‘temporary’ halt in enrichment work
Editors note: Tonight the New York Times is reporting the Obama administration is opening direct talks with Iran in uranium enrichment issues. WNDs earlier reports, including this one, provide the depth and context for this announcement. Reza Kahlili will discuss this breaking story on an upcoming edition of Fox and Friends, time to be announced.
Iranian and U.S. negotiators have reached an agreement that calls for Iran to halt part of its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of many of the U.S. sanctions against the Islamic regime, according to a highly placed source...

‘Valarie Jarret is a busy little koranimal.’
Indeed she is...
As for me... well I hope to see the day when we do NOT look at each other as "black" or "white",or put candidates in categories based on race.... but rather see each other as "Americans" first.
You completely missed my point but I guess that's my fault because I didn't explain myself. I just thought everyone would know what I was talking about without my having to explain.
The Republican party was founded by both black and white Americans. Blacks and whites working together as equals. So there is nothing wrong with my hoping to see the day come that we vote in our first black Republican president.
There are times when we have to be “unfair.” Millions of lives depend on us being “unfair.”
