TEHRAN, Iran, (AP) -President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday rejected demands that Tehran suspend uranium enrichment activities, saying his government was determined to continue using nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

Ahmadinejad spoke after top Iranian and European negotiators ended their latest round of talks in Berlin, saying they had “come to some positive conclusions” but failed to reach an agreement.

“They asked for a one-day halt (of uranium enrichment). We said we won’t do it,” Ahmadinejad told thousands of people in Karaj, west of the capital, Tehran.
