TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Secretary Ali Larijani stressed here on Thursday that the likely UNSC resolution on Iran’s nuclear activities would be incapable of exerting any pressure on the Islamic Republic.Speaking to reporters after his meeting with Pakistani Foreign Minister Mian Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri, the Iranian nuclear official said such a resolution will prove to be useless, but meantime added, “The Islamic Republic of Iran will give a proper response to any such move.”
He said such a resolution would place Iran in a new situation, warning that the move would certainly affect Iran-West nuclear talks.
Describing his four rounds of talks with EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana as fruitful, Larijani underlined that his country remains committed to the results gained during Larijani-Solana talks.
The nuclear official further viewed any UN Security Council resolution against Iran as irrational, and warned that Tehran would reconsider its cooperation with IAEA under such circumstances.
He said that Iran’s issue is of a technical nature, and stressed that the case should be examined at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), adding that if some states strive to politicize the issue, Iran would be obliged to use its political potentials and would use its negotiation capabilities to resolve the problem.
Yet, he pointed out that a UNSC resolution against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program wouldn’t be an important document, and continued, “During the savage atrocities of the Zionists in Lebanon, the UNSC did not issue any resolution to condemn Israel but after the Zionist regime’s defeat they issued a resolution which was devoid of any significance.”
Larijani also reminded that UNSC refrained from taking action to deal with Israel’s nuclear weapons after that regime’s prime minister Ehud Olmert admitted to the case, “while they are passing resolution against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program. That is to say, they do not care whether our nuclear program is of civilian or non-civilian nature, rather they only seek to deprive us of the nuclear technology.”
