European Big Three Influenced by Iran-U.S. Conflict: MP
TEHRAN (Mehr News Agency) MP Hassan Qashqavi said here Saturday that the statement issued by the three European countries on Wednesday concerning the starting of a uranium conversion plant in Isfahan was a propagandistic and political skirmish that marked a new era of serious conflict between Iran and the United States.
Qashqavi told the Mehr News Agency that the concerns of Britain, Germany and France on Irans nuclear research activities were baseless.
Their concerns are basically related to the old conflict between Iran and the U.S. and the three countries are similarly influenced by the issue just like Canada, Australia and Japan, he said.
Member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said that the U.S. has comprehensive information about Irans peaceful nuclear program and it tries to mislead the world public opinion in this regard.
He added that Washingtons measures toward Iran are similar to those it made against Iraq, saying that the U.S. does not intend to give up its excuses against Iran before long.
The MP said that various researches on converting uranium oxide concentrate into uranium hexafluoride gas are to be carried out in the plant, adding that this is a completely scientific procedure. The inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were constantly monitoring the Isfahan site, Qashqavi mentioned
Even IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei made positive remarks about this nuclear site in his strongly-worded statement that led to the agencys unfair resolution on Irans nuclear program, he said.
Even IAEA spokesman Melissa Fleming has referred to the site as an uncontroversial issue which is under full scrutiny and unconnected to a commitment by Iran to suspend uranium enrichment, he said in conclusion. http://www.tehrantimes.com/Description.asp?Da=4/4/2004&Cat=2&Num=019
