Tehran, Iran, Feb. 03 – Iran’s former President Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani warned the 35-nation board of governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency not to make the “mistake” of reporting the Islamic Republic’s nuclear file to the United Nations Security Council.

“I tell the West, do not make this mistake”, Rafsanjani told worshippers in Tehran during his Friday prayers sermon, the Fars news agency, which is run by the Office of the Supreme Leader, reported.

“Since yesterday until now all eyes have been on Vienna. If what the EU suggested at the [session of the IAEA’s”> board of governors is adopted, opening the way for our file to be seen to at the Security Council – even as a report – they will have made a big error”, he said.

In London, earlier this week, the five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany announced that they had agreed upon reporting Tehran’s suspected nuclear weapons file to the Security Council.

“If the five [permanent”> members of the Security Council display such cruelty and injustice by going ahead with this unjust action which will be written down in history, they will have destroyed people’s trust”.

The powerful cleric advised the West “not to commit such a historical crime”, adding that the move will not be beneficial for them in the long run.
