Speaker Blasts West's Politically-Tainted Approach to Iran's N. Issue

"Iran's nuclear issue is more raised in the political discussions of the US and EU than the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and they sometimes raise this issue because it serves as a political excuse (for them)," Larijani told reporters on Wednesday, on the sidelines of an open session of the parliament and after being reinstated in his post as the parliament speaker for the forth consecutive year.

He further reiterated Iran's inalienable rights to use peaceful nuclear technology, and said, "The Iranian nation pursues the case vigilantly and defends its achievements and this resistance is their right and appropriate."

Asked about Iran's policies on cooperation with the IAEA, he reiterated that Tehran's policy is based on interaction with the UN nuclear watchdog but setting new systems of inspections for Iran is not sensible and Iran will not accept it.

Iran says its nuclear program is a peaceful drive to produce electricity so that the world's fourth-largest crude exporter can sell more of its oil and gas abroad. Tehran also stresses that the country is pursuing a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

The US and its western allies allege that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program while they have never presented corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations against the Islamic Republic.

Iran is under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment, saying the demand is politically tainted and illogical.

Iran has so far ruled out halting or limiting its nuclear work in exchange for trade and other incentives, saying that renouncing its rights under the NPT would encourage the world powers to put further pressure on the country and would not lead to a change in the West's hardline stance on Tehran.

Iran has also insisted that it would continue enriching uranium because it needs to provide fuel to a 300-megawatt light-water reactor it is building in the Southwestern town of Darkhoveyn as well as its first nuclear power plant in the Southern port city of Bushehr.
