Mehmanparast: Westerners, real violators of NPT

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tabriz, June 27, IRNA -- Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Wednesday that westerns are the real violators of Non-Proliferation Treaty.

He told IRNA that NPT focuses on three main axes of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, preventing proliferation of mass destruction weapons and observing peaceful nuclear rights which are all ignored by arrogant powers.

Iran has always acted based on the treaty and has never done anything against it while western countries, the US and the Zionist regime have always violated and underlined the treaty, Mehmanparast said.

Saying Western countries and the US are misusing Iran’s nuclear issue as a pretext to put pressure on the Islamic Republic, he said all these countries are well aware of the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program because Tehran has accepted all articles of NPT and is acting based on them.

He underlined the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program and said Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has banned use of nuclear technology for production of weapons and therefore it is Iran’s principled stand not pursue non scientific use of nuclear technology.
