(IRNA) - Head of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi in a meeting with the British Ambassador to Tehran Geoffrey Adams said that any possible resolution to be issued against Iran's nuclear programs by the UN Security Council may result in the suspension of the country's membership in NPT.
According to a report released by Majlis Media Department, he said that the recent measure of the five permanent UNSC members plus Germany (5+1) as well as the eight world industrial countries (G8) aiming to change the process of Iran's nuclear issue was an untimely and hasty decision, reports Trend.
Underlining that Iran is prepared for and welcomes talks on the issue, he said, "Change of direction of Iran's nuclear problem and issuing a resolution by the UNSC will not help solve it, rather may lead to suspension of Iran's membership in NPT."
Expressing Iran's will to continue its nuclear activities within the framework of NPT and according to its inalienable right based on the content of the treaty, he declared the country's readiness for further confidence building and eliminating any doubts in the nuclear path.
Turning to the stance of Majlis and its crucial role in the decision-making process in various fields, including foreign policy, he urged the need to avoid any hasty decisions given the suitable grounds for holding serious talks on the 5+1 group's proposal.
Boroujerdi also referred to the role of parliaments in eliminating the obstacles facing cooperation between countries and doing away with inter-governmental misunderstandings and said that exchange of views and inter-parliamentary collaboration will pave the way for expansion of ties between Iran and Britain.
For his part, Adams said that the proposal of the 5+1 group to Iran is a good starting point to initiate another confidence building process.
He hoped that Iran's positive response to the package of proposal will prepare the grounds for constructive talks on the issue.
The British diplomat said that the foreign troops in Iraq will stay for a short while and hoped that once Iraq's domestic forces manage to develop their capacities to promote peace, they will pave the way for full withdrawal of foreign soldiers from the country.
Adams pointed to the pains and sufferings of the civilians in Lebanon falling victim to Israel's actions and urged that the attacks on Lebanon should be stopped and the roots of the crisis should be examined.
He said that favorable grounds currently exist for constructive talks on the issue between Iran and Britain.
