Tehran, Iran, Oct. 10 – Ali Larijani, secretary general of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, said that he planned to formulate a new national security doctrine, state-run dailies reported on Monday.

“Currently, we don’t have a plan for national security”, Larijani said, adding, “One of the projects we are following up is the formulation of a national security doctrine”.

“Every country must have a national security doctrine and renew it over time”, the SNSC chief said.

Larijani, a former General of the Revolutionary Guards and a protégé of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is a key ally of President Ahmadinejad. As secretary general of the SNSC, Larijani is in charge of Iran’s nuclear negotiations with the West.

“If they speak to us with threatening language, we will resist”, Larijani warned. “We will not leave the Non-Proliferation Treaty, but we will not accept the Additional Protocol”, he stated referring to the agreement which gives international inspectors the ability to carry out spot inspections in the country.

Larijani said that Iran would accept certain points in the latest resolution adopted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), but other points would be rejected.

“We said that we have plans for [uranium”> enrichment. We will not back down from our decision even if they increase the cost of carrying out work at the Isfahan Uranium Conversion Facility (UCF). They know that Iran is serious”.

“We have a particular program and do not want to delve into its details at present. However, this program has a set timeframe”.

Larijani complained that international bodies had treated Tehran worse than North Korea. “North Korea, who is further ahead than us in nuclear technology and enrichment, has no problem with the Agency, but, with Iran, every day there is a problem”.

Larijani also announced that senior nuclear negotiator Sirous Nasseri was no longer in the negotiations team. There has been speculation that Nasseri had fallen foul of Iran’s leader after it emerged that he had ties to an oil company involved in dealings with a United States company with links to senior American officials.
