Iran's membership in the WTO has no connection to American Congress

Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency – "The statements and declarations and claims are another episode of a serial which is being made by the United States hostile attitude", says Alaiddin Borujerdi - head of National Security and Foreign Policy commission – in response to America's Congress representatives' statements based on opposition with Iran's membership in World Trade Organization (WTO).

A group of lawmakers in the US Congress has called on the administration of President Barack Obama to oppose Iran’s efforts to join the World Trade Organization.

In a letter sent on Thursday to US Trade Representative Michael Froman, the four lawmakers from the US House of Representatives claimed that the WTO rules would constrain any future efforts to impose sanctions on Tehran.

"Islamic Republic of Iran's membership in World Trade Organization has no connection to the United States of America's congress; the membership is being done in the following of a legal process and procedure", declared the principalist MP who represents Borujerd and Eshtarinan electoral district since seventeen years ago.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi is the Chairman for the Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security of the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran.

Iran applied for WTO membership in 1996 but its application was vetoed by the US. In 2005, Washington agreed to allow a limited membership for Iran in the organization as part of a possible nuclear deal.

A nuclear accord was signed in July 2015 between Iran and the six major world powers, namely Russia, China, France, Britain, the US and Germany.

The deal imposes some restrictions on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of US, European Union and United Nations sanctions.
