Jalili slams G5+1 for not condemning assassination of scientists

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Geneva, Dec 6, IRNA -- Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili on Monday lambasted the Group 5+1 (US, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany) for not condemning the terrorist attacks against Iranian nuclear scientists.

Speaking on the first day of the meeting between Iran and the G5+1, Jalili asked, 'How come the world is silent on this terrorist act and the frank admission of certain countries which had a part in it? And how come the G5+1 did not condemn this act?'

Jalili condemned the West and member states of the G5+1 for their stance on the killing of Iranian nuclear scientist Majid Shahriari.

Two Iranian scientists were the target of assassination bids one week ago as one of them was killed, he added.

Iran's top nuclear negotiator said that his country remained to this day the biggest victim of terrorism, pointing out that 13,000 people have been killed as a result of the terror acts committed by the western-backed MKO terror grouplet.

Jalili referred to recent statements by the head of the British secret service John Sawers who had made specific references to intelligence operations inside Iran.

He also pointed to the official website of the foreign ministry of the Zionist regime which said the Tehran terror acts were aimed to deal a blow to Iran's nuclear program and preventing that country's progress in nuclear technology.
