Iran to vigorously pursue nuclear energy program: MP

A senior Iranian parliamentarian says the Islamic Republic will vigorously proceed with its peaceful nuclear activities in line with international regulations.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran will continue its [nuclear] activities with full strength and will enhance its technological capability to the maximum level for enrichment [needed] for its industry and will do these within the framework of international regulations,” Spokesman for the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Hossein Naqavi Hosseini said on Saturday.

He added that Iran is a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and is among those countries in the world that have nuclear industry.

The Iranian legislator noted that talks have been resumed between Iran the UN nuclear agency to settle the differences on the Iranian nuclear energy program.

Iran and the IAEA wrapped up two days of negotiations in the Austrian capital, Vienna, on October 29, which was described afterwards by both sides as “very productive.”

Tehran and the UN nuclear agency agreed to hold the next round of the talks in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on November 11.

IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano on Friday voiced cautious optimism about the future of the talks with Iran over its nuclear energy program.

The United States, Israel and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program. Iran has categorically rejected the allegation.
