200 Iranian MPs Reject IAEA resolution

Tehran, Sept 19, IRNA -- More than 200 lawmakers in a statement on Sunday rejected a resolution passed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors regarding Iran's nuclear issue.

The statement was read by a member of the Majlis Presiding board, Alireza Zakani, at the Majlis open session here today.

According to the document, the lawmakers also regretted the improper response of the Board of Governors to Iran's goodwill in assuring the international community of Iran's intent to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

"They also warned the board of governors that if they continue their present policy they cannot expect the Additional Protocol to be ratified," added the statement.

It further said that the illegal resolution makes Iran consider revising its policy towards continuing its obligations within the framework of the additional protocol and letting the IAEA continue inspections of its nuclear installations.

In addition, the lawmakers announced through the statement that they will seriously continue working on the fuel cycle for the nuclear power station without paying attention to such resolutions.

The statement underlined: "In case the IAEA Board of Governors continues with its current policy, Majlis will make appropriate decisions in response."
