Foreign Ministry statement on Security Council resolution against Iran
Tehran, Dec 24, IRNA
IRI Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement condemned the adoption of a resolution against Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities.
The statement, a copy of which was faxed to IRNA, said the Islamic Republic of Iran considers the passing of the resolution an extrajudicial action by the Security council and against the Charter of the United Nations.
The statement said the resolution shows that certain members of the Security Council, especially the United States of America and England, are using the Security Council as a toolbox and while they refuse to comply with NPT which requires them not to transfer military nuclear technology and equipment to other countries and disarm themselves, they try to develop their nuclear arsenal.
The statement went on to say such political and illegal actions cannot limit the inalienable and absolute rights of countries or hinder the implementation of those rights but only make the decisions of the security Council untrustworthy.
Iranian nation remembers the unilateral and instrumental use of the Security Council by US and England against its independence and national sovereignty during the nationalization of oil during which those two countries called the will of Iranians as a threat to the world peace.
The statement said,” Now that the Zionist regime does not accept to join the NPT and put its activities under the supervision of UN nuclear watchdog and the Security Council does not do anything towards the official announcement of the prime minister of the Zionist regime to possess nuclear weapons, the double standard of the Security Council on Iran’s nuclear program and Israel’s nuclear arsenal is absolutely unacceptable.”
So, the Iranian nation does not heed the unsubstantiated decisions of the Security Council and will never do so in the future.
