Majlis speaker urges EU to use language of logic

TEHRAN, Aug. 14 (MNA) -- Majlis Speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel said here on Sunday that the most recent resolution on Iran’s nuclear program issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency Board of Governors is illegal, adding that the Iranian nation would not tolerate such an intrusion.

Haddad Adel also urged the European Union to use the language of logic not threats.

 

Although Article 4 of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) states that access to nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes is the inalienable right of all signatories and although the European Union big three underlined that Iran has that right in the Paris Accord, the recently ratified IAEA resolution demands that Iran terminate all nuclear activities at the Isfahan Uranium Conversion Facility (UCF), he pointed out.

 

He went on to say that the resolution was ratified after Iran resumed its uranium enrichment activities, with the restart of the Isfahan UCF being the preparatory phase of the nuclear fuel cycle. 

 

Iran has sincerely cooperated with IAEA inspectors and made efforts to gain the confidence of the world over the past two years, but Iran no longer trusts the EU3 as it did before, he explained.

 

The IAEA resolution is illegal, so one can assume it was a political measure taken due to U.S. pressure, he said.

 

The fact that the Zionist regime has never signed any of the international treaties on non-proliferation but possesses hundreds of nuclear warheads, which are a regional security threat, proves that the IAEA resolution on Iran’s nuclear program is a political measure, he observed.

 

“At the same time, the United States announces that Israel is its ally, but condemns Iran, which conducts its nuclear activities within the framework of international regulations,” the parliament speaker noted.

 

Iran is prepared to continue its cooperation with the IAEA and its negotiations with the European Union until objective guarantees can be provided, but the Islamic Republic is also determined to develop nuclear technology and calls on the EU not to follow the lead of the United States in the nuclear negotiations, Haddad-Adel said in conclusion.
