Bojnourd, Aug 13, IRNA
Member of Majlis Energy Commission, Hossein Afarideh, said here Saturday that Iran will continue its negotiations with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) within the agreed framework, reiterating Iran's inalienable right to access civilian nuclear energy.
He added that the continuation of talks will take place as a confidence-building measure to show that Iran is seeking peaceful nuclear purposes.
"Iran will not abandon access to peaceful nuclear technology because it is its legitimate right," he underlined.
Afarideh stated that the new government should define the framework of nuclear talks with the IAEA or the Europeans.
He said the IAEA's recent resolution against Iran comes from the double standards of some countries especially the United States towards those wanting to have nuclear know-how.
"Such countries are pressing Iran while they do not react against countries like Israel, India and Pakistan that have access to atomic bomb," he said.
Afarideh confirmed that there have been proposals to change the negotiating partner, saying the new government should decide on the matter.
He further stated that the US can be a probable choice if it abides by international law.
