TEHRAN, June 19 (MNA) –- A Science, Research and Technology Ministry official asserted here Friday that Iran will not allow anyone to restrict its nuclear research capabilities by arguing Iran is seeking nuclear weapons, saying that the Iranian nation will not accept such limitations.

Dr. Reza Mansuri, deputy chairman for research studies at the Science Ministry, said the Iranian officials have continually emphasized Iran’s peaceful use of nuclear technology following guidelines set out by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

 

Mansuri told the Mehr News Agency that based on these facts Iran will not accept any restriction in this regard and it has the right to use nuclear technology.

 

U.S. and European pressure on Iran to halt nuclear activities ignore Iran’s historical position and right to technological development, he said, adding that they are trying to limit Iran’s potential by every possible means.

 

Mansuri said that Iran must be vigilant about maintaining its legitimate place in the arenas of science and technology accepting no limitations in this regard.
