Iran FM discusses nuclear summit

Manouchehr Mottaki, the foreign minister, says all are entitled to nuclear energy.

    Iran is hosting a nuclear conference on Saturday it calls "Nuclear Energy for All, Nuclear Weapons for No one".

    It comes just days after a nuclear conference in Washington, hosted by Barack Obama, the US president, where there was renewed push by some countries towards more sanctions against Tehran.

    Al Jazeera's Nazanine Moshiri sat down with Manouchehr Mottaki, Iran's foreign minister, and asked him whether Tehran's summit was in response to Washington's.
