Algerian Foreign Minister Mohamed Bedjaoui emphasized here Monday, "The Islamic Republic of Iran's nuclear dossier is fully transparent and in compliance with the international rules and regulations."
The Algerian top diplomat made the comment in a meeting with Head of Majlis' National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi.

Bedjaoui added, "Algiers believes all members of the NPT, including the Islamic Republic of Iran, are entitled to have peaceful nuclear activities and the West cannot deprive them of that natural and legal right."
The Algerian Foreign Minister said, "The members of Non Aligned Movement (NAM) strongly support peaceful nuclear activities and they should take practical steps in that regard."
Criticizing Western countries' double standards in dealing with different nations' nuclear programs, Bedjaoui said, "All the same, Algeria is seriously opposed to proliferation of nuclear weapons, no matter by which country, and serious and practical steps need to be taken to avoid that phenomenon."
Boroujerdi arrived in Algiers on Monday evening on a three-day working visit and is scheduled to meet Algerian President Abdel-Aziz Bouteflika on Tuesday morning.

During the visit with the Algerian president the Iranian MP would deliver Iran's new President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's written message to his north African counterpart.
