Majlis to pass nuclear law: MP
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Jan 17, IRNA
A parliamentarian said here Wednesday that Majlis would pass a law on the nuclear issue in the near future so the world would know that Iran has finally gained complete access to nuclear technology.
An MP from the central Iranian city of Isfahan, Hassan Kamran, made the disclosure during his pre-agenda speech in Majlis.
"The world should know that we will not give up even one iota of our nuclear right," he said.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday gave notification of a law that mandates the government to revise its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and called for its implementation.
The Islamic Consultative Assembly (Majlis) on December 27, 2006 passed a double-urgency bill urging the government to accelerate Iran's peaceful nuclear activities and to revise the country's cooperation with the IAEA to meet the interests of the nation.
The decision was made following passage of UN Security Council Resolution 1737 under US pressure on December 23 which declared Iran in non-compliance with its NPT obligations.
Kamran said several sanctions have been imposed on Iran but the nation have successfully overcome them.
He said that as a representative of the nation he was calling on the government not to withdraw from Iran's nuclear right.
The MP also asked ministries to draw special plans in accordance with the current situation.
