(AP) Iran's president says Tehran seeks an international settlement over its nuclear program but will never give up uranium enrichment.

Sunday's remarks by Hassan Rouhani repeat past declarations over the country's "right" to produce nuclear fuel. But Rouhani seeks to assure critics that Iran will not make sweeping concessions in negotiations with world powers.

Talks ended early Sunday in Geneva with all sides proclaiming progress but noting obstacles such as France's worries over Iran's enrichment levels and a planned heavy water reactor that produces plutonium byproducts. Negotiations resume next week.

Rouhani was quoted by the semi-official ISNA news agency as telling parliament that uranium enrichment is a "red line" that cannot be crossed.

The West suspects Iran's nuclear program has military dimension. Iran denies the charge.
