Tehran, Iran, Feb. 12 – Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi warned the West on Sunday not to “misuse” the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty as a “political tool”.

“The nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is an international commitment and we are committed to it; but we can never accept this commitment when used politically or as a tool”, Asefi told reporters during his weekly press conference.

“What matters to us is to act based on our international responsibilities, safeguards and within the framework of the [International Atomic Energy Agency”>; they must never lead this situation into a stage that matters are done through force and the NPT and the IAEA are used politically to put pressure on Iran”, he said.

“We were prepared and had predicted various situations; our policy towards this issue is in one direction and every one has the same opinion”, he added.

Asefi said that Tehran did not fear being referred to the United Nations Security Council for possible sanctions. “The other side will suffer more than us”.

He said that the Foreign Ministry along with the rest of the government was following the policies of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
