Speaking to domestic and foreign reporters, the president added that as a signatory of the additional protocol to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Iran has abided by it and will continue cooperating with the International Atomic Energy Agency

"We complied with the terms of the protocol as example of good understanding and suspended the process of uranium enrichment voluntarily.

"Despite the fact that EU trio had undertaken to facilitate transfer of nuclear technology to Iran and cooperate closely at regional and bilateral levels, they have not kept with their pledges on various pretexts," he added.

The chief executive hoped that the Europeans would comply with their undertakings with respect to Iran's nuclear program to prove that they act independently.

Stressing that Iran will not accept a resolution ignoring Iran's legitimate right to acquire technology for peaceful application of nuclear energy, he hoped that Board of Governors would not pass such resolution.
