Iranian lawmakers denounce EU bans on Iran oil

Following is the text of the statement: 


In an illogical and illegal decision beyond the ratifications of the United Nations Security Council, the European Union imposed a ban on the purchase of Iran’s oil and decided to implement it.


While condemning the hostile policy of the European Union, we, the representatives of the great Iranian nation, mention the following points: 


(1) The European Union’s decision is regarded as an act of hostility against the great Iranian nation and will forever be recorded in the historical memory of the Iranian people.


(2) Through reliance on the support of the Iranian nation, the system of the Islamic Republic of Iran has proved over the past three decades that it never relinquishes its legal and international rights while respecting all international regulations and does not succumb to the hegemonistic policies of the major powers.


(3) Iran has an inalienable right to peaceful nuclear technology, and this right has been clearly given to the signatories in Article IV of the Non-Proliferation Treaty. Therefore, the European Union’s stance that the Islamic Republic should not exercise this right is in blatant violation of international regulations and is rejected.  


(Article IV reads:


1. Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production, and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty.


2. All the Parties to the Treaty undertake to facilitate and have the right to participate in the fullest possible exchange of equipment, materials, and scientific and technological information for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Parties to the Treaty in a position to do so shall also cooperate in contributing alone or together with other States or international organizations to the further development of the applications of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, especially in the territories of non-nuclear-weapon States Party to the Treaty, with due consideration for the needs of the developing areas of the world.) 


(4) The great Iranian nation has repeatedly proved that it has turned sanctions into opportunities through reliance on God’s holy being and utilization of national capabilities, and it has repeatedly proved this over the past three decades. 


(5) The European Union, which is grappling hard with its own economic problems, must be aware that such hostile measures will shift economic and commercial inclination of Iranian businessmen and industrialists toward the countries that do not take hostile measures against the Iranian nation and that Western countries will be the loser in this game. 


We once again condemn the European Union’s oil embargo on Iran.
