Tehran Times Political Desk
TEHRAN (MNA) -– Majlis speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel said here Tuesday that the government and the Majlis share common views on the issue of nuclear energy.

Haddad Adel stressed that the Majlis defends national interests, adding that the country is entitled to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

“We do not have the right to turn our back on our nation’s interests and capitulate to threats,” he said. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was established with the purpose of enabling nations worldwide to use nuclear energy, the speaker explained, adding however that “today world powers are pressuring Iran to prevent the country from acquiring peaceful nuclear technology.”

Referring to the recent remarks made by U.S. President George W. Bush, Haddad Adel said that the U.S. President and officials are always seeking an excuse against Iran, adding that the U.S. opposition with the Islamic Revolution of Iran is not a new issue.

Presently, the issue of Iran’s peaceful nuclear program is a new excuse the U.S. is using against the country, he said.

Haddad Adel stressed that the U.S. is well aware that Iran has abided by international regulations.

He further referred to the recent remarks made by White House National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice on the possible issue of a tough-worded resolution against Iran by the United Nations Security Council in the next session of the IAEA Board of Governors.

These remarks indicate that world powers intend to politicize international communities through coercion, the speaker said.

He went on to say that all nations and governments should resist and oppose the world powers’ pressure on international communities."
