Tehran, Jan 13, IRNA - Thirty-two Majlis deputies, in a written motion on Sunday, underscored the need for defending the 1975 Algiers Accord in line with preserving Iran's national interests.
The Algiers Accord was signed by Iran and Iraq in 1975 in the Algerian capital to settle territorial disputes between the two neighboring states.
By proposing another motion, the deputies urged Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki "to seriously refrain from making remarks which are contrary to the country's national interests with regards to its share of the Caspian Sea resources and following up issues to restore historical rights of the Iranian nation."
The motions were read by Majlis Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel during this morning's open session of the legislative body.
