Pakistan believes Iran's nuclear activities are totally for peaceful purposes and opposes measures against Tehran which run counter to international rules and regulations.

Pakistan National Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Amir Hussain made the remarks at a meeting with the head of the Iranian parliamentary delegation to the 113th assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), Kazem Jalali, in Geneva on Monday.

The speaker described bilateral relations between Tehran and Islamabad as "excellent" and called for greater political and parliamentary cooperation.

He praised Iran's humanitarian aid to victims of the devastating earthquake which hit Pakistan early this month.

Jalali, who also chairs the Iran Inter-Parliamentary Group Council, said the humanitarian aid given by Iran to the quake- stricken Pakistanis was intended to consolidate friendly ties between the two countries.

Turning to the Iran nuclear issue, he said the country has the right to have access to peaceful nuclear technology, adding, "We have always been committed to our undertakings and international regulations."
"We are still ready to continue constructive talks on nuclear issues without preconditions."
Jalali called on all independent-minded states to support the legal and peaceful activities of signatories to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and not to submit to US expansionist policies.
