Netanyahu’s UN statements cannot affect N-talks: Iran MP

Politics - A senior Iranian legislator says anti-Iran remarks made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the UN General Assembly cannot affect Tehran’s nuclear talks with the six world powers.

On Wednesday, Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi denounced the Israeli premier’s UN speech as “disgusting” and said that “Netanyahu’s warmongering stance is not worthy to the P5+1.”

On October 1, Netanyahu told the 68th session of the UN General Assembly that Iran must dismantle its entire nuclear program, repeating his baseless accusation that Tehran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons.

The Israeli premier claimed that the regime “will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons. If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone.”

Boroujerdi further stated, “Netanyahu’s stance against Iran’s nuclear [energy] program is a merely fruitless struggle as the world believes that Iran’s activities in the area of nuclear technology are peaceful and today fewer countries believe in the lies of the Zionist regime [of Israel].”

The Israelis have spewed their “big lies” about Iran on many occasions seeking to build nuclear weapons, while the Islamic Republic has from the start stressed its commitment to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), said Boroujerdi.

Shortly after Netanyahu ended his speech at the UN, Iranian Deputy UN Ambassador Khodadad Seifi condemned his statements as “inflammatory,” warning him against any miscalculation by planning to attack Iran in response to his threat of acting alone to stop the country’s nuclear energy program.

Netanyahu’s salvo of threats and accusations against Iran comes as Tehran categorically rejects the allegations leveled by the US, Israel and some of their allies against its nuclear energy program, maintaining that its nuclear energy program is only for peaceful purposes.

Israel, which is the sole possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East with 200-400 warheads, has refused to acknowledge that it possesses nuclear weapons and, unlike Iran, is not a signatory to the NPT.
