MPs unanimously condemn US-backed IAEA resolution

Larijani said that Washington is trying to deflect attention from the Occupy Wall Street movement by bringing up Iran's nuclear program.

Several Iranian MPs also commented on the issue.

Iranian MP Mahmoud Ahmadi Bighash noted that any resolution by any organization that threatens the country's national interests will be condemned by the people and their representatives in the parliament.

If certain powers continue to undermine the credibility of the IAEA or try to trample on Iran's nuclear rights, the country may withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), he added.

MP Mehrdad Lahouti stated that Iran has always been open to dialogue with the agency and it did not make sense for the IAEA to adopt a resolution calling for dialogue.

MP Hossein Garousi pointed out that Israel possesses nuclear weapons and has refused to sign the NPT, but nobody has bothered to ask why.

Iranian MPs say the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee is currently discussing the country's future cooperation with the IAEA and will soon inform the Majlis and the administration about their conclusions.

The International Atomic Energy Agency Board of Governors issued a resolution against the Islamic Republic on Friday.

The resolution voiced “deep and increasing concern” about Tehran's nuclear program, and also called on Iran and the IAEA to intensify dialogue to resolve the dispute over the Iranian nuclear energy program.

The United States, Israel, and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program.

Yet, as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, Iran has every right to develop and acquire nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.

In addition, the IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence indicating that Iran's civilian nuclear program has been diverted to nuclear weapons production.
