NAM restates support for Iran nuclear program
The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) has once again stressed Iran's inalienable right to develop, produce and use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, Press TV reported.
Choices and decisions made by other countries, including Iran, in regards with peaceful uses of nuclear technology and fuel cycle policies should be respected, NAM's statement read.
NAM stressed that dialogue and diplomacy without preconditions must remain as the only ways to achieve a sustainable and comprehensive resolution for Iran's nuclear issue.
The statement was read at the summit of the Board of Governors in the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) headquarter in Vienna on Wednesday.
In June 2010, the UN Security Council imposed a fourth round of sanctions on Iran under intense pressure from the United States and its allies who claim Tehran's nuclear program may have potential military aspects.
On September 5, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Fereydoun Abbasi said Tehran has offered to give the IAEA full supervision for five years if sanctions imposed against the Islamic Republic are lifted.
Iran says that as a member of the IAEA and a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has every right to the peaceful applications of nuclear energy for electricity generation and medical research.
