Iran Calls United Nations Sanctions Predictable and Vows To Continue Nuclear Program – Ahmadinejad Ready To Defend Work


Iran blew-off the United Nations Security Council sanctions as western bullying, and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the sanctions “invalid”. The Iranian president promised to stick to their nuclear programs. “The Iranian nation is wise and will stick to its nuclear work and is ready to defend it completely," Ahmadinejad said.

Iranian Member of Parliament (MP), Heshmatollah Felahat-Pisheh, said "All these attempts are just endeavors by western countries to generate a heavy atmosphere and impose pressures on Iran." The Iran Students News Agency reports that Felahat-Pisheh said “All through these years because the West always deprived us of our essential nuclear needs, we were practically sanctioned. Therefore the issuance of such a resolution against Iran was completely predictable. However, Iran will celebrate its nuclear achievement in the Islamic Revolution anniversary days.”

The MP went on to say that their relationships with China and Russia were not strategic, but were political in nature. "In strategic relationships, the two sides maintain their ties despite all changes and transitions. But in a political one, the ties are maintained along with other policies based on loss and profit," he said.

He went on to say that "Russia's and China's vote for the Security Council resolution were of political nature. They had estimated their loss and profit in the issue and reached the conclusion to vote in favor of this resolution."

The parliament member said "The Islamic Revolution anniversary (Feb. 11) is a new beginning for Iran's new nuclear policies. From then on it will be revealed that whether the West still insists on the resolution and imposing pressure or accepts Iran as a nuclear reality through negotiations.”

He also remarked that Iran's revision of ties with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) did not mean exclusion of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) framework. "Many countries refuse to become NPT members because they fear leaving it, because accepting NPT is voluntary and optional but leaving it is a crime, particularly if accompanied by political propagandas. Therefore we don't need to leave the NPT framework but we can revise our ties with supervising safeguards," he surmised.
