India Backs Iran's Nuclear Rights

“Like other countries, [Iran] has the right to peaceful nuclear energy and UN Security Council sanctions should not damage Iran's or other countries' economies,” India's Permanent UN Ambassador Hardeep Singh Puri was quoted as saying in a Friday report by IRNA.

The US and its allies accuse Iran of pursuing a military nuclear program and have used this unsubstantiated pretext to pressure the UN Security Council to impose a fourth round of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

India's UN representative also underscored the importance of using diplomacy regarding Iran's nuclear program and noted, “We believe that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has the central role and anticipate Tehran to continue its cooperation with the agency.”

Iran, a signatory to the NPT and a member of the IAEA, insists on its legal right to utilize nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

The IAEA has been regularly conducting rigorous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities despite the US-sponsored sanctions and allegations but has never found any evidence of the country's diversion from a civilian nuclear program.

The Indian diplomat further pointed out that the sanctions should not impact Iran's trades and commercial transactions.

Iranian authorities have fiercely refuted Western allegations against their peaceful nuclear program, arguing that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, Tehran has the right to pursue and utilize peaceful nuclear technology.
