Tehran not to give up right to peaceful use of nuclear energy: MP

Tehran, March 17, IRNA – Iran will not give up its right to peaceful use of nuclear energy, the head of Majlis (Parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Monday.

In an interview with IRNA, he said, “Iran is committed to defend its right to peaceful use of nuclear energy during upcoming talks with the G5+1 including US, China, Russia, France and UK plus Germany on Tuesday.”

Senior MP underscored that Tehran aims to develop its economic relations with the international community by convincing the world of the peaceful nature of its nuclear activities.

“Sanctions imposed on Tehran are illegal and based on alleged reports.”

Iran’s nuclear negotiating team headed by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif left Tehran for Vienna on Monday to discuss nuclear issue with G5+1.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany are scheduled to hold the next round of nuclear talks on Tuesday.

The negotiations are aimed at reaching a comprehensive accord on Iran’s peaceful nuclear program after the two sides clinched a landmark interim deal last November.
