VIENNA – An Iranian opposition group said Thursday Pakistan’s admission its disgraced nuclear hero Abdul Qadeer Khan had sold centrifuges to Iran proved the Iranian regime lied about its nuclear intentions.

“Todays acknowledgement by the government of Pakistan once again reveals the clerical regimes pattern of lies and deception to the world community and as the Iranian resistance had reiterated earlier, leaves no doubt that the mullahs are in pursuit of nuclear weapons,” the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said in a statement.

“The National Council of Resistance of Iran had revealed the transfer of nuclear technology and equipment by Dr Khan to the mullahs regime for the first time in November 2004,” the NCRI added in its comments received in Vienna, the seat of the International Atomic Energy Agency the IAEA.

The NCRI joined a call by the United States to have Iran referred to the UN Security Council for possible sanctions, saying such a measure should take place “immediately.”

“Any delay would only help the Iranian regime further down the road to acquire the A-bomb,” the organization said.

Pakistan on Thursday acknowledged for the first time that Khan, under house arrest in Islambabad, had dispatched centrifuges to the Tehran government, though without official Pakistani knowledge.

Iran’s nuclear activity has been under intense international scrutiny, with Tehran insisting it is developing it for peaceful purposes, while notably the United States charges Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons.
