TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will continue its uranium enrichment activities despite talks to buy fuel for its Tehran reactor from abroad, Foreign Minister Manouvchehr Mottaki said on Tuesday.

"These issues are not related. Iran will continue its uranium enrichment. It is not linked to buying fuel from abroad," Mottaki told a news conference, broadcast live on state television.
