MP: US Carrot-and-Stick Policy Inefficient

“The US carrot-and-stick policy on Iran has no value at all,” Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Alaeddin Boroujerdi told ICANA on Monday.

He added that Washington's dark record before and after Iran's Islamic Revolution in 1979 proved that its policies are based on enmity towards the Islamic Republic.

The Iranian legislator stated that the US is still making utmost efforts to impose sanctions and exert political and economic pressure on Tehran although American officials know that the carrot-and-stick policy on the Islamic Republic will not work.

“We cannot trust remarks by US officials on interaction (with Iran),” Boroujerdi noted.

He emphasized that Iran will strongly pursue its policies and peaceful objectives in line with international regulations.

Boroujerdi's remarks came after US National Security Advisor Tom Donilon said on Sunday that the United States' offer to hold talks with Iran about its nuclear program is still on the table.

"That path remains open to the Iranians to come to the table and deal with the nuclear issues; increasingly serious nuclear issues that not just the United States but the entire world community sees," Donilon said.

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 and a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has every right to engage in nuclear activities for all peaceful purposes.
