Iran Not Taking Orders from any Country on Nuclear Case: MP

Alistair Burt, British Foreign Office Minister in charge of Middle East and North Africa Affairs has reportedly said a nuclear armed Iran would not be tolerated by the region. He has also said Tehran must be forced back to the negotiation table on its nuclear program through more sanctions and economic pressures.

Mohammad Karim Abedi said: "Such talks are mere political gestures and indicative of attempts by the British authorities to conceal the truth.”

He stressed that in circumstances under which Western countries agreed with Iran’s preconditions it would sit at the negotiating table. He said threatening Iran with sanctions is fruitless, adding that Western countries could not force Iran to retreat in his nuclear position by imposing sanctions.

In related news, in the wake of the latest report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iran says a certain double-edged position in the report indicates the agency is still influenced by political pressure.

“If certain ambiguous issues are raised or the old issue of alleged studies is discussed again without providing relevant documents, it is an indication that political pressure is still at play in the IAEA,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters on Tuesday.

In its latest report issued on February 25, the UN nuclear agency once again confirmed that Iran's nuclear program has never been diverted to nuclear weapons production.

The report, however, urges Tehran to halt its uranium enrichment activities, as demanded by four resolutions previously imposed by the United Nations Security Council based on the false argument that Iran may have a hidden program geared towards weaponry.

Mehmanparast once again emphasized that Iran's nuclear activities are carried out in line with nuclear rights of the Islamic Republic in pursuit of peaceful objectives.

“The IAEA report reaffirmed and stressed that Iran's nuclear activities had no diversion to non-peaceful aims,” the Iranian spokesman said.

He noted that the political pressure on the IAEA is aimed at diverting the agency from its primary responsibilities towards “meeting the objectives of certain countries.”

He further noted that more than 120 member states of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) have recently issued a statement in support of Iran's nuclear program.

Addressing the opening session of the IAEA Board of Governors meeting in Vienna on Monday, IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano confirmed that Iran is not in pursuit of a nuclear arms program.

"We are not saying that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. We have concerns and we want to clarify the matter," he said.

"Full implementation by Iran of its binding obligations is needed to establish international confidence in the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program," Amano added.

Iran has vehemently rejected allegations against its nuclear program, saying it needs nuclear energy to meet its growing domestic demand for electricity and to provide fuel for the Tehran research reactor, which produces medical isotopes for cancer patients.

The Islamic Republic says that as a member of the IAEA and a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has the right to use peaceful nuclear energy.
