The uranium conversion facility's (UCF) resumption of operation in Isfahan is in line with building confidence with the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA), said a lawmaker on Wednesday.

Ali-Akbar Qobadi, representing the cities of Marvdasht, Arsanjan and Pasargad (Fars province) in Majlis, told IRNA that the resolution of the IAEA Board of Governors on Iran's nuclear issue had been the most hostile of its kind.

Qobadi said that as long as the Board of Governors does not show proper reaction to Tehran's strategies which are based on the international regulations and the IAEA Charter, Iran, as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), will continue its peaceful nuclear activities.

The UCF activity in Isfahan is chemical in nature to meet the country's needs in different agricultural and medical fields and have nothing to do with any nuclear-grade activities, he said.

If the IAEA and its Board have no proper cooperation with Iran in the nuclear field, Tehran will start resuming other nuclear activities in Natanz, said the parliamentarian.

He said the Islamic system of government in Iran enjoys strong public support in that connection.
