Following the recent terrorist attack on two Iranian lecturers, 262 Iranian lawmakers have condemned the move that is widely believed to have targeted the country's nuclear achievements, Press TV reported.
The dastardly terror of two university professors was held by agents of the global arrogance and Israel in their continuing desperate measures aimed at Iranian experts, said the lawmakers in a Tuesday statement, IRNA reported.
Such terrorist moves are in line with the objection that the arrogant and colonial powers have persistently expressed against the nuclear and scientific advancements of the Islamic Republic, the statement added.
The lawmakers called on Iran's police and security forces to immediately identify perpetrators of the terror attacks to expose the face of those that purportedly claim to defend human rights and fight terrorism.
Yet unidentified terrorists attached explosives to the vehicles of Dr. Majid Shahriari and Professor Fereydoun Abbasi in different locations Monday morning. Shahriari was killed immediately after a blast, but Abbasi and his wife escaped the bombing with minor injuries.
Furthermore, Resolution 1747 adopted by the United Nations Security Council in March 2007 against the Islamic Republic specifically cited Abbasi's name as a "nuclear scientist," thus suggesting that perpetrators behind the assassination could be traced through those who included the professor's name in the UN resolution.
Iran has blamed Israel and Western powers for the terrorist attacks, hinting at the possible connection between the recent remarks of the head of the British intelligence agency (MI6) about Iran and the European Parliament's new stance regarding an anti-Iran terrorist group.
On July 12, Iranian nuclear physics scientist Dr. Massoud Ali-Mohammadi was killed in a remote-controlled bomb attack in the Iranian capital of Tehran.
