Iranian Parliament approved a bill on Sunday urging the government to continue 20 percent uranium enrichment. The bill approved as 171 parliamentarians agreed with it but 3 lawmakers voted against it.
The bill calls for confronting inspection of Iranian ships as well as prohibition of implementing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) requests which go beyond the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
The measure seeks to confront the US and UK plots and protect Iran's peaceful nuclear achievements.
Based on the bill, Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) is obliged to provide 20-percent enriched fuel for Iran research reactors used for medical, industrial and agricultural purposes and cooperate with the IAEA only within the Safeguards framework.
It also urges the government to hit back if its planes and ships are inspected or its planes are denied being provided with fuel.
Iran began the enrichment process to the level of 20 percent in February.
Iran insists on its right to continue pursue peaceful nuclear work as a signatory of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, but the West claims that Iran is seeking nuclear weapons.
