Boroujerdi: US pressurized UNSC to issue resolutions against Iran

Tehran, Jan 27, IRNA
Head of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, said on Sunday that since Iran and IAEA have had positive cooperation, UNSC resolutions against Iran which were issued under US pressure sound illogical, illegal and politically-motivated.

According to the Press Bureau and Public Relations Department of Majlis, Boroujerdi said this in a meeting with the incoming Hungarian Ambassador to Tehran Giorgy Boustin.

In view of the very good cooperation between Iran and IAEA and removal of many ambiguities which resulted in a positive report by IAEA chief, Mohammed ElBaradei, he expressed hope that grounds for normalizing Iran's nuclear case would be created and it would be reverted to IAEA from UNSC.

"If the US assumes that the third UNSC's resolution will have crucial impact on Iran's parliamentary elections, they are making grave miscalculations," he said.

The US should know that the Iranian people, by exercising vigilance in the upcoming parliamentary elections will once again thwart US plots, he said.

Boroujerdi called for closer parliamentary cooperation between Iran and Hungary to deepen and broaden ties between the two countries.

Given the positive status of Hungary in Iran's public opinions, he expressed the hope that through continued and effective efforts of new Hungarian ambassador to Tehran, the two countries will witness further expansion of ties.

The new Hungarian ambassador, for his part, described relations between the two sides as very deep rooted and this has led to exchange of political and parliamentary delegations between the two sides.

Highlighting the roles of parliaments in expansion of ties among countries, he expressed the hope that the upcoming visit of Hungarian parliamentary delegation to Iran would lead to further expansion of mutual, regional and international cooperation.

Given that peaceful use of nuclear energy is among absolute rights for every country, he expressed the hope that Iran's nuclear case would be resolved through diplomatic means.
