Iran-Boroujerdi-Nuclear
Head of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi here Wednesday underlined that the attempts of US and the West to deprive world nations of peaceful application of nuclear energy are quite useless.

Speaking during a meeting with the President of Algerian People's National Assembly Abdelkader Bensalah, he said that since the West's discriminatory policy in this respect threatens the interests of Iran as well as all developing countries and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) member states, they should exchange views on the issue to come up with a solution.

Boroujerdi called upon the NAM member states and developing countries to cooperate with one another in international fora, in particular within the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors to safeguard their right for access to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes in line with the relevant international agreements.

He stressed that Iran's nuclear activities are in full accordance with IAEA nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the related international laws.

Meanwhile, Boroujerdi presented a report on Iran's recent presidential election, the victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the process of the vote of confidence given by Majlis to the president's proposed ministers.

He further underlined that the new government and Majlis are determined to expand bilateral relations with Muslim countries.

Boroujerdi arrived in Algiers on Monday evening on a three-day working visit. He met Algerian President Abdel-Aziz Bouteflika to deliver President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's written message to his North African counterpart.

Upon his arrival in Algiers on Monday, Boroujerdi met the Algerian Foreign Minister Mohamed Bedjaoui.
