Tehran reacts to Canadian documentary film about İran
Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast condemns a documentary against Tehran's nuclear program, saying Western countries resort to every possible means to harm the country's nuclear activities, Press TV reported.
Mehmanparast said at his weekly press conference on Tuesday that the anti-Iran documentary "proves that certain Western countries are dismayed by our country's peaceful nuclear activities which are carried out in line with [defending] the inalienable rights of our nation."
The spokesperson said that such countries were resorting to every possible means to hinder Iran's nuclear progress, and said "They even make use of different tools ... to create an unreal atmosphere in order to apply pressure on our policies."
"They should know that this path is wrong and the public opinion will not fall for such fabricated, unreal facts," he noted.
The Iranium is a documentary which tries to depict Iran's nuclear program as a threat against the West. The hour-long documentary has been produced by a US-based organization and is expected to appear on screen in the US and Canada.
Mehmanparast said that Western countries had better respect the Iranian nation's rights, and stick to international law instead of adopting "illogical" policies.
He pointed out that Iran was entitled to use peaceful nuclear technology as it was a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and complied with its commitments.
According to the Iranian spokesman, any sort of measures aimed at depriving Iran of its legitimate nuclear rights were unacceptable.
The United States and its Western allies have accused Iran of developing a military nuclear program, an allegation rejected vehemently by Iran.
