Tehran, Aug 27, IRNA

Rapporteur of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazem Jalali here Sunday said that no one in Iran approves of atomic bomb production, neither is this authorized based on the Supreme Leader's Fatwa (religious decree).

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of Majlis open session, he said that in principle, the strategy of the ruling system is based on using nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

He stated that according to Iran's security doctrine, using nuclear energy for non-peaceful purposes is banned.

Underlining that Iran is totally against killing and threatening innocent people, the MP said, adding "Even if we had atomic bomb, we would never use it against Tel Aviv, given that killing innocent people is against our principles."
Concerning the recent remarks of Majlis first deputy speaker Mohammad-Reza Bahonar about the nuclear expectations of Iranian people, he said, "Addressing the world community, he said that any irrational approach to the Iranian people could lead the public opinion toward a direction which would be in nobody's interest." Jalali stressed that Iran's nuclear right should be restored in a rational atmosphere.
