TEHRAN, June 30 (MNA) –- Ali-Akbar Mohtashamipur, a member of the Central Council of the Assembly of Combatant Clerics, said on Tuesday that Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Secretary Hasan Rowhani did not have the right to sign an agreement with the European Union in Brussels without informing the people beforehand, the Fars News Agency reported.

Rowhani should apologize to the Iranian nation for this decision, he added.  

 

Mohtashamipur said that all countries including Iran have the right to gain access to nuclear technology.

 

He added that Western countries do not want Islamic nations to make progress and therefore intend to prevent Iranians from attaining their rights.

 

Mohtashamipur also criticized the United States for its obstinate measures and its determination to hinder Iran’s efforts to develop nuclear technology.

 

Following the dispute between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) last year, the British, French, and German foreign ministers arrived in Tehran and signed an agreement with the SNSC secretary, according to which Iran agreed to temporarily suspend its uranium enrichment activities, he explained.

 

He went on to say that the EU has no business meddling in the dispute between Iran and the IAEA.

 

Mohtashamipur stressed that no decision should be made concerning the fate of the Iranian nation without informing the people beforehand.

 

As Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and President Mohammad Khatami have mentioned, the tenets of Islam do not permit Iran to make use of nuclear weapons, he said.     

 

Mohtashamipur added that Iran has no need to produce nuclear weapons.

 

He said that gaining access to nuclear technology was Iran’s natural right and lauded high-ranking Iranian officials for insisting on the people’s right in this regard.
