TEHRAN, June 30 (MNA) -- Since the Tehran Declaration has been invalidated, uranium enrichment can be resumed, MP Kazem Jalali of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said on Friday.

Commenting on Tehran’s letter to the European Union big three (France, Britain, and Germany) and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Mohamed ElBaradei, Jalali told the Mehr News Agency, “Being committed to our obligations toward the Europeans is of no avail, for the Europeans were not committed to their pledges toward Iran. For instance, they have not facilitated Iran’s relations with the agency and they got Iran into trouble by issuing an acrimonious statement against our country.”


Iran would have kept its pledge to the three European countries on the suspension of its uranium enrichment program if they had fulfilled their commitments, he added.


Jalali went on to say that access to nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes is the inalienable right of all countries; however, the European Union draft resolution called for the discontinuation of the Arak Heavy Water Reactor and the Isfahan Uranium Conversion Facility, which runs counter to the terms of both Iran’s agreement with the EU and the additional protocol to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).


In conclusion, he said that the Tehran Declaration is invalidated, which means Iran can resume uranium enrichment.
