Did I hear right?
Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

Buffalo BreezeBuffalo Breeze – Late Breaking Buffalo News Bureau
The Buffalo Breeze is essentially a local Buffalo newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Buffalo, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Buffalo, New York, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Buffalo Breeze.
Daredevil Nik Wallenda, who crossed Niagara Falls on just a 2-inch-thick cable last year, has announced that he will walk across the Grand Canyon on June 23, and this time, he won't be wearing a safety harness.
At 1,500 feet above the Colorado River, the sky-high stroll will be Wallenda's highest walk ever, reports the New York Daily News.
The self-proclaimed "King of the Wire" said the plan to walk across the Grand Canyon is "just another one in the bucket list".
The 34-year-old, a member of the funambulist family the Flying Wallendas, said this stunt will be more thrilling that the last.
The network required the daredevil to complete the record-breaking journey across Niagara Falls at 200 feet with a tether - an obligation Wallenda blasted as a serious "setback".
Wallenda said it was his dream to walk over Niagara Falls since he was about 5 or 6 years old, but part of that dream was taken away because he had to wear that harness.
The Discovery Channel will televise the wirewalker's latest antics, which are set to take place in a remote area of the Grand Canyon run by the Navajo Nation, which has consented to the event.
Wallenda said he is in the midst of rigorous training in Florida, where he is using wind machines to mimic conditions at the national park. ...
