TEHRAN: Iran’s top national security official Saturday backed off from a threat to resume uranium enrichment, saying the Islamic republic had no intention of doing so for “the time being”.

“We do not want to carry out enrichment for the time being and no decision has yet been taken to resume it, but we will reconsider the suspension of other activities,” Hassan Rowhani told the official to state news agency.
