Lawmaker Renews Iran's Strong Opposition to Discrimination in Int'l Treaties

Addressing the second international conference on nuclear disarmament on Sunday, Rapporteur of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazzem Jalali said, "Iran abides by its undertakings, while it will never give up its rights."

He pointed to the discriminatory approach pushed by the world powers into the international treaties, and said the world has already undergone the bitter experience of discriminator treaties and conventions drafted by the world powers.

"But these bitter experiences shouldn't be repeated any more as the era of unilateral and selective treaties is over."

The legislator underlined that "while the Islamic Republic of Iran actively participates in compiling and regulating international documents, it also seriously pursues full and non-discriminatory implementation of these documents and treaties".

The abovementioned is among Iran's rights, and "international pressures cannot make Iran give up its rights", he reiterated.

Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.

Tehran has dismissed West's demands as politically tainted and illogical.

Iran has repeatedly voiced strong protest at the discriminatory approach of the international bodies towards the different world nations.

In the same line, Tehran has also frequently cautioned that Israel and the US are the main obstacles to the materialization of nuclear disarmament in the world.

Earlier today, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi blasted the Zionist regime's clandestine nuclear program, and said Israel is the only obstacle to the materialization of a Middle-East free from atomic weapons.

"The Zionist regime is the only obstacle to the creation of a Middle-East free from nuclear weapons," Salehi said, addressing the second international conference on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation in Tehran on Sunday.

Referring to a conference due to be held in 2012 "on the establishment of a Middle East free from all weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), including nuclear weapons" approved by the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference last year, he expressed the hope that the conference would make the Zionist regime accept the international community's repeated demand for joining the NPT.

Salehi described disarmament as a necessity for the creation of a secure world, and said that no precondition should be set for the materialization of this goal.

Iran, an NPT-signatory, has called for the removal of all weapons of mass destruction from across the globe.

The UN General Assembly approved a draft resolution proposed by Iran on nuclear disarmament in October 2009 amid strong opposition by the US, Britain, France, Israel and a number of western countries.

The resolution ratified in the first committee of the UN General Assembly called on all nuclear countries to annihilate their nuclear weapons under the supervision of international bodies.

More than 100 countries, including non-nuclear members of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), voted for the resolution.

The resolution also urged Israel to join the NPT and allow the IAEA to inspect its nuclear installations.
