Iranian MPs introduce double-urgency motion on suspension of IAEA inspections

Tehran, Dec 24, IRNA-A number of Iranian MPs introduced a double-urgency motion to Majlis on Sunday calling for suspension of the UN nuclear watchdog's inspection of Iranian nuclear sites following the approval of an anti-Iran resolution by the United Nations Security Council.

A member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Heshmatollah Falahat-Pisheh told IRNA on the sidelines of a Majlis open session Sunday that the motion did not indicate Iran's withdrawal from the Non-Proliferation Treaty. "There is no need so far, to quit the NPT," Falahat-Pisheh said.

Reacting to the approval of the UNSC resolution for imposing sanctions against Iran, the MP said that adoption of the resolution "was a politically-motivated act and part of a psychological warfare against Iran.

"Iran's nuclear program has been under sanctions since 1990," Falahat-Pisheh said adding, "This resolution has only legitimized previous sanctions for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)."

The MP added the fact that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has recently designated the February 11 as the day of Iranians' nuclear celebration indicated that imposing sanction on Iran would, by no means, affect Iranians' national will to achieve their (nuclear) rights.

February 11 is the day when Iranians will celebrate the victory anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution which led to the ouster of the then Shah, Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi.

"Real encounter and serious diplomatic encounter would start after February 11," Falahat-Pisheh added.
