Tehran, Iran, June 17
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
Iranian lawmakers agreed to give urgency to addressing a plan that would oblige the government to what they call preserving the country's nuclear achievements and rights.
The urgency plan was proposed by 50 members of the Iranian Parliament and was addressed during the open session of the day, Mehr news agency reported June 17.
Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Parliament, stressed that the plan is highly important in preserving the country's national interests.
"It is necessary that a single voice be departed to the West from the Parliament indicating that the Iranian nation is unanimous in defending national interests," he said.
He went on to add that Iran will never allow enemies to enter its military positions.
A priority to the plan was passed by the lawmakers with 185 votes in the positive, two in the negative, and four abstentions.
The new plan consists of three articles and two notes.
MP Mohammad Hassan Asafari said that the plan stresses the removal of all sanctions the very day the agreement is signed.
Secondly, the IAEA would be able only to have common inspections of Iran's facilities and it would be barred from military or security sites as well as interviewing nuclear scientists, he said.
Third, there would be no limit for Iran in accessing the peaceful nuclear technology, the MP said.
The outcome of the nuclear talks would also have to be approved by the Iranian parliament in order for the government to make a deal, according to the plan.
Also, the Foreign Ministry would have to present a full report of the talks in a short while to the parliament.
Iran and the group P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) are talking over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.
Iran is resisting Western demands to having access to its military sites and conducting interviews with Iranian security officials.
Tehran is trying through the talks to remove US, EU, and UN Security Council sanctions on its economy.
