UNSC reaches no agreement on anti-Iran resolution: Boroujerdi

Tehran, March 16, IRNA
A Majlis deputy said here Thursday that the United Nations Security Council has reached no agreement on adoption of resolution against Iran's peaceful nuclear activities.

"However, there are signs the UN Security Council is ready to issue a resolution against Iran's peaceful nuclear program," said head of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi in an interview with reporters.

"If another resolution is passed against Iran, it will have no impact on the country's decision," he said.

He added, "The Islamic Republic of Iran stresses the nation's rights within framework of regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)." The MP laid emphasis on negotiations as the only option left for the Security Council in Iran's case, saying, "If the Council adopts another resolution against Iran's peaceful nuclear activities, it will be another mistake on its part.

"In case of adoption of anti-Iran resolution, Tehran will make a reciprocate decision."

Boroujerdi rejected speculations by certain Western media on possibility of the US military attack on Iran late in March, saying, "If the US commits a mistake, it will face Iran's severe reaction.

"The US is aware of Iran's potentials more than other states.

Washington will not commit such a mistake with respect to current sensitive situation in the region."

He added, "Iran accepts negotiations without any suspension precondition. Suspension (of uranium) enrichment resulted in adverse consequences for Iran."

Pointing to Russia's two-month delay in completion of Bushehr power plant in southern Iran, he called on Russian officials to fulfill their commitments.

"The Islamic Consultative Assembly (Majlis) has a negative atmosphere over completion of Bushehr power plant. A negative view to Iran-Russia ties will not be beneficial for Moscow.

"Power plants are built in Iran based on international tender." Boroujerdi further stated, "If Russians do not act well in their first experience, they will receive negative scores for the incoming cases."
