MP: US Anti-Iran Allegations Baseless

“Based on our religious principles, the use of nuclear weapons is forbidden, and the accusation of Americans regarding the possibility of Iran gaining access to these weapons is baseless,” Mahmoud Ahmadi Bighash, member of Iran's Parliament (Majlis) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said on Sunday.

Ahmadi Bighash, however, pointed out that using peaceful nuclear technology is a fundamental right of the Islamic Republic, and that Iranians disregard such claims by US officials.

On June 30, his last day in office, Gates accused Iran of inflicting casualties on US troops in Iraq and claimed that the Islamic Republic was likely to gain access to nuclear weapons in the next three years.

“Whenever the Americans face a problem or reach a dead-end in their country or in the countries under their control, they seek to make accusations against others to find a way out,” Ahmadi Bighash further explained.

The Iranian lawmaker went on to say that the US has lost its major puppets in the region and aims to harm the Islamic Republic because it knows that the recent uprisings and revolutions in the Arab world are rooted in Iran's Islamic Revolution.

Earlier, Iran's Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi also dismissed Washington's latest allegations against Iran as repeated lies.

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

Iran has repeatedly and vehemently rejected the unverified Western allegations that it is pursuing a military nuclear program, insisting that as a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), it has every right to engage in nuclear activities for all peaceful purposes.

Furthermore, the IAEA has been regularly conducting rigorous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence of the country's diversion from a civilian nuclear program.
