Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend D.Khationglu / Due to the legal importance of the nuclear plans, politicizing Iran's nuclear activity can not be completed through settling this issue. "The only way of resolving the nuclear problem of Iran is to implement the laws of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)," said the Iranian politician for international affairs and also editor-in-chief of 'Asre-Iran' newspaper, Jafar Mohammadi.
As a result of the requirements by the western countries, the UN Security Council adopted two resolutions against Iran in order to prevent country's plans on uranium enrichment, and discussions are being held on the third resolution. The USA boycotted four Iranian banks and several European countries highlighted their intentions to apply keener economic and political sanctions against Iran. On 23 November the IAEA required that Iran should cease its plans on uranium enrichment and join Additional Protocol. According to the Protocol, the IAEA may at any times begin inspecting the nuclear stations of Iran. The Chairman of the Iranian Nuclear Organization, Mehdi Aghazadeh, stated on 23 November that yet it is not time to join the Additional Protocol, IRNA reports.
The only way out the crisis around Iran's nuclear question is to act within the IAEA laws, Mohammadi reported to Trend by telephone from Tehran on 27 November. "According to the IAEA laws, it is not obligatory to join the Additional Protocol. Being a member of the IAEA, Iran is not liable to join the Protocol. During the term of the former Iranian President, Muhammad Hatяmi, we ceased the activity of our nuclear stations for a period of two and a half years. Did the Western position against Iran change? In my opinion, the nuclear issue is only a pretext for the West," Iranian politician said.
Muhammadi stated that over the period of two and a half years, Iran implemented the Additional Protocol. The West wanted Iran to temporarily implement the Protocol and Iran did it. "The temporary period of the West covered two and a half years, but nothing changed. Now they again require that Iran should cease its nuclear activity. This requirement is illegal," Mоhammadi said.
Other Iranian politician, Muhammad Asangщaran, who is functioning in Sweden, reported to Trend by telephone from Stockholm that the nuclear issue of Iran is not of legal, but political importance. "The Iranian Government made nearly 5mln people seek asylum abroad, executed more than 30.000 politicians, openly violates the human rights and is accused of supporting terrorist organizations. Providing an opportunity to such Government to realize a nuclear program means creating grounds for the outbreak of the third world war," the politician said.
According to Asangaran, the Iranian Government feels necessity for the nuclear weapons in order to transform into a significant figure in the region, gain an advantage over the West and crush the opposition in the Country. It is unacceptable to give such an opportunity to Tehran, he said.
