TEHRAN (ISNA)-An Iranian Parliamentarian said the country's response to any threat against its interests would not be "smile."

The Head of Iranian Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi referring to the recent statement of the EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton and the P5+1 on the group's willingness for talks with Iran, stressed the necessity of good will of the group.

"The same previous failures will take place, if they want to repeat the previous remarks," he told ISNA.

Boroujerdi added that the other negotiating team should know that Iran's nuclear work is under NPT and the IAEA rules and regulations.

He reiterated that the U.S. and the West should accept realities about the Islamic Republic of Iran and know that Iran is in the "position of strength" and that its policies have never based on war and conflict. "Naturally, Iran would not respond by smile if its interests are threatened and it will use all required tools to defend its national interests."
