OIC backs Iran nuclear program
The Organization of the Islamic Conference strongly supports Iran's nuclear program, says OIC deputy head for humanitarian affairs, Press TV reported.
"The OIC in all of its resolutions has voiced support for Iran's peaceful nuclear program as a basic right," said OIC Assistant Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Ata al-Manan on Monday.
The US, Israel and their European allies have accused Iran of pursuing a nuclear weapons program.
Iran says its nuclear program is totally peaceful and within the framework of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) to which it is a signatory.
Tehran officially launched it first nuclear power plant in the southern city of Bushehr last month by loading fuel into the core of the facility's reactor.
The US has admitted that the plant is completely used for peaceful purposes.
Ata al-Manan, who met Iran's permanent representative to OIC Hamid-Reza Dehqani on Tuesday, also thanked Iran for its humanitarian aid supplies to flood-hit people of Pakistan.
At least 1,760 people died and 21 million were affected by the recent flooding, which submerged nearly one-fifth of Pakistan.
The United Nations says millions of people have been left without food, water, shelter and other basic necessities in Pakistan as a result of the floods.
