Referral of Iran's Nuclear Dossier to the IAEA

Wednesday, November 28, 2007

A senior Iranian MP says the Parliament is mulling over the suspension of the voluntarily implementation of the NPT Additional Protocol.

Head of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said that the condition is not suitable for the further implementation of the Protocol unless Iran's nuclear case is returned back to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

He added that the imposition of tougher sanctions against the Islamic Republic would only hamper the process of Iran-IAEA negotiations.

The Iranian MP said the US and its allies have been pushing for fresh sanctions against Iran under the pretext of 'ambiguities' in its nuclear activities.

“Now that the recent IAEA report asserts Tehran has been truthful about key aspects of its nuclear activities there is no reason for further sanctions,” Boroujerdi added.

He expressed hope that the referral of Iran's nuclear dossier to the IAEA would be on the agenda of the upcoming meeting of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany.
