NUCLEAR: Iran May Back Out of Nuclear Commitments, National Security Official Says

An official of the supreme national security council said Iran may consider backing out of its nuclear commitments if the IAEA board next September issues another resolution condemning the Islamic Republic for lack of cooperation . He said the conservative Majles may bulk at ratifying the additional NPT protocol, which the Islamic government signed last year.

August 2, 2004 - The resumption of uranium enrichment activity is not just America’s concern, but the European powers expressed the same worry in the closed-door talks with Iranian envoys last week in Paris, secretary of the supreme national security council’s foreign relations committee Hossein Mousavian said on Sunday, warning the regime's hard-liners that if Iran does not address the Europeans’ concern, it cannot count on Europe’s support in the upcoming meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of governors.
He warned Iran’s European negotiation partners that the conservative Majles may not ratify the additional protocol to the UN Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which allows more stringent inspections of Iran’s nuclear sites. In addition, the Majles may force the government to end the voluntary and temporary suspension of uranium enrichment, he added.

“The IAEA board of governors and Europe must recognize Iran’s legitimate rights within the NPT framework without any precondition, discrimination and shortcoming or not expect cooperation from Iran,” Mousavian said, according to IRNA.

He said Iran was not concerned about its case being referred to the UN Security Council, since the country has endured 25 years of US economic sanctions. “The economic pressures (against Iran) over the past 25 years have turned out to be ineffective. "This measure will be the new trial of a failed experience which we are not worried about," he added, according to official news agency IRNA.

“Our problem is not the Security Council since it has no prerogative beyond the NPT, according to which the council has to ask Iran to cooperate and the Islamic Republic’s policy has been such from the beginning,” he said.

“I do not think the Americans and Israelis will ever dare to carry out an attack even of the smallest scale against Iran’s nuclear facilities,” he added.

“America’s position in the region requires it not to take such a risk, while Israel faces an internal crisis,” he said.

Today in history, is the 100th anniversary of the Iranian Consitutitional Revolution in 1904.
Iranians were the first Asian nation that uprised against the dictatorship of the rulers. They protested againt the Qajari Kings and the rule of Radical Islam. And they successfully made the first Asian Parliament and make the king respect the Parliamentary system.

Interesting to know that an American Teacher died in clashes with Kings forces while helping Iranian constitutionalist forces in city of Tabriz. Iranians still pay tribute to his grave in that city and are thankful for his help.
