Lawmaker: World Powers Seek Nuclear Monopoly

Spokesman for the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Kazem Jalali told IRNA on Sunday that such countries are not committed to carrying out their obligations with regards to nuclear disarmament.

“Unfortunately the countries which possess nuclear technology and are signatories to the [Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty] NPT treat the countries who are not signatories to this treaty and who possess nuclear bombs with utmost respect,” the Iranian lawmaker said on the sidelines of the second International Conference on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation in Tehran.

Jalali went on to say that the double standards of nuclear armed and NPT signatory states undermine the credibility of the treaty.

“The inalienable right of governments to the peaceful development of nuclear technology has its roots in the important principle that scientific and technological achievements are the common heritage of mankind,” he pointed out.

“The Iranian parliament will always defend the rights of the nation to the use of peaceful nuclear energy,” Jalali insisted.

Iran is holding the second International Conference on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation.

Nuclear experts from more than 40 countries, ambassadors and representatives from international bodies such as the United Nations and the International Atomic Energy Agency are attending the two-day conference in the Iranian capital.

Iran plans to hold the 3rd International Conference on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation at ministerial level where the country will once again promote its message that all nations are entitled to peaceful nuclear energy.
