Iranians discuss their country's nuclear programme and the international stand-off over the issue.
I am not sure the Iranian government has the will to build a nuclear weapon
Occupation: Studio manager
I believe nuclear power is necessary. Every day it is getting harder to produce the energy we need with ageing power plants and a growing population.
Most people think that the programme is just for civilian power and not nuclear weapons. Some think the West just cannot stand our technological achievements.
But the mood here is mixed. While many support the programme, many also blame the government for the current stand off.
The international community should think twice before imposing any further sanctions.
Fuel sanctions would make everyday living much worse for ordinary people. Iranians depend on their private cars as public transport is poor. Sanctions would make people feel hopeless.
I am not sure the Iranian government has the will to build a nuclear weapon. Some hardliners would support such a project, but other senior political figures would oppose the idea.
It's unclear to me why our government built a second enrichment site. It could be for perfectly harmless, civilian purposes. Similarly, the missile tests could be a defensive gesture. Iranian authorities have always worried about the nightmare of an attack on our nuclear facilities.
Obama has shown he is more open to talking to our government than previous US leaders. I hope our government can approach him with a clear list of concerns and demands and start talking.
