Iran mulling response to UN resolution
Iranian MPs are deliberating on how to react to a fourth round of sanctions against Tehran approved by the United Nations' Security Council on the ninth of June, Press TV reported.
"The new round of sanctions proved American officials' hostility toward the Iranian nation", parliamentarian Kazem Delkhosh told Press TV's reporter after Parliament's open session on Monday.
"But this will only make Iranians more determined to acquire modern technology, and they will fight harder for their rights", added the top MP.
This comes as a question mark hangs over Russia and China's stance on Iran. Although their strong economic ties with Tehran have stopped sanctions from affecting oil exports, their backing for further sanctions is regarded as unacceptable by members of Parliament.
"The MPs will definitely have a proper response", member of Parliament Mehdi Kouchakzadeh told Press TV.
"Some MPs have proposed withdrawing from the NPT while others suggest reducing cooperation with the IAEA", parliamentarian Asgar Jalalian told Press TV.
He said the MPs will continue their deliberations until arriving at a final decision.
In the meantime, the parliamentarians have reiterated that they will study the matter carefully to avoid making any hasty decisions.
