MPs urge gov't to seriously pursue nuclear program

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, June 16, IRNA -- Members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly (Majlis) in a statement on Wednesday called on the country’s government to follow up all aspects of Iran’s peaceful nuclear program “seriously and quickly.”

The statement has been signed, by 201 members of Majlis from the total 290, in reaction to the recent anti-Iran resolution issued by the UN Security Council as well as in protest to the US and UK plots against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Majlis urged the Iranian government to continue producing 20-percent enriched uranium to supply fuel for the Tehran reactor.

The Iranian nation rejects the sanctions resolution and sees it as illegitimate, the Majlis statement said.
