Mullah Rafsanjani has warned Europe that the mullahs' regime could harden its stance if the EU failed to show flexibility in the stalled nuclear negotiations.

"If the Europeans are rational, we can make some assurances... but if they put their foot down, then our attitude will change," former mullah president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani was quoted as saying by the Hamshahri newspaper.

Mullah has criticized the "preliminary agreement" reached Sunday between Iran and the European Union over Tehran's nuclear program as being unfair to the Islamic Republic.

The deal, which diplomats from Britain, France and Germany hammered out during two days of negotiations, calls for the suspension of Iran's uranium enrichment program for an unspecified period in exchange for peaceful atomic technology and economic incentives.

But many in mullahs' regime regard the deal as detrimental to mullahs of Iran. "This technology has been achieved by our people by our own means, and others cannot put an end to it," said mullah, who now heads Iran's top mullah political arbitration body known as "Expediency Council"."
