Tehran, Iran, Aug. 13 – Iran threatened on Sunday to discontinue its membership of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) if the international community tried to deprive it of its nuclear “rights”.

The threat came from Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel who is a close ally of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

“Iran will not accept a suspension of [uranium”> enrichment”, Haddad-Adel told an open session of Majlis.

He rejected a recent resolution by the United Nations Security Council ordering Tehran to freeze all its uranium enrichment activities by August 31 or face possible sanctions.

“If Iran’s membership in international organisations including the International Atomic Energy Agency means that we will be deprived of our inalienable rights then we will have no reason to continue our membership in these organisations”, he told Iranian lawmakers.

Separately, hard-line lawmaker Mahmoud Mohammadi told reporters in Majlis that Tehran had “serious doubts” about continuing its cooperation with the IAEA.

Mohammadi, who is a key member of the Majlis National Security Committee, said, “This resolution proved that the IAEA does not act responsibly to guarantee the rights of its member states. The Islamic Republic of Iran will never accept these pressures and threats and it rejects them”.
