Samareh Hashemi: New resolution against Iran ineffective

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 27, IRNA
A new resolution by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) against Iran's peaceful nuclear program will not have political or economic impact on the country, Iranian President's Top Advisor said in Davos on Sunday.

Mojtaba Samareh Hashemi made the remark in an interview with the Russian TV network 'RT' on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, adding that the US policy-makers should review their hostile stance on Iran.

He further said that allegations against Iranian civilian nuclear drive are baseless, and that certain countries had mobilized all their political and media capabilities against Iran, but the recent report of the US National Intelligence Estimates (NIE) neutralized all their vicious attempts.

Iran is a member state of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), he said, noting that the country has abided by its commitments, and it is to pursue its rights in this respect.

Pointing to the fact that the UN nuclear watchdog is the only authorized body to supervise nuclear activities of countries, he added that the agency's recent report on Iran's nuclear activities showed there was no diversion from its civilian trend.

He also noted that issuance of more resolutions against Iran would not only be ineffective from political and economic points of view but would also prove Iran's righteousness to the world.

Given the fact that the UNSC adopts double-standard stance on countries, such resolutions will not affect the powerful Iranian nation, he said.

The US has imposed various sanctions on Iran for the past 27 years, but Iranians has seized the opportunity to expedite their progress in most fields, he added.

Referring to the fact that Iran and Russia are two historical allies and have common interests, he said that Russians' support for Iranian peaceful nuclear program is considered the endorsement of law, justice and resistance against bullying governments.
