Iran's parliament urges to continue uranium enrichment


news.xinhuanet.com

TEHRAN, July 18 (Xinhua) -- Iran's parliament approved a bill on Sunday to urge the government to continue the 20-percent uranium enrichment, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.

Under the bill, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) is obliged to provide 20-percent enriched uranium fuel for Tehran' s research reactor, according to ISNA.

According to the report, the bill, approved by the majority of the lawmakers, calls for the prohibition of implementing IAEA requests which go beyond the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) obligations.

It seems that Iran is very determined to keep enriching uranium. This is only going to cause more trouble with the U.S., but it seems that Iran is not to bothered by the sanctions. At this point I am beginning to think that Iran might be telling the truth about using this uranium for power plants. The amounts of uranium they are producing aren't really enough to make large nuclear bombs. I'm guessing that the U.S. will take this as a threat and probably increase black ops inside Iran or maybe make more sanctions.

"According to the report, the bill, approved by the majority of the lawmakers, calls for the prohibition of implementing IAEA requests which go beyond the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) obligations."

And frankly they should not have to. Iran, as every other signatory of the NPT, has the right (yes the right, therefore no obligation to provide reasons to other states who don't like them) to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Of course, if Iran can be found in breach of the NPT (by actual fact, not wild speculation by those who have something to gain by keeping them from improving their own energy self-sufficiency) then we are dealing with a whole different ball game and things like the sanctions and (currently at least) ridiculous rhetoric from the West may then be reasonable and justifiable.

Until then, however, Iran has every right to continue its nuclear program and those who don't like it (especially those who themselves refuse to sign the NPT) can cry about it.

The IAEA, the only international body which has any real expertise or capability to judge the nature of nuclear programs, has consistently defended Iran's right to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes and has found no evidence that they are attempting to develop nuclear weapons. Until that changes, all the anti-Iran sabre-rattling and actions such as the sanctions imposed are completely unfounded and thoroughly unjustifiable, at least in regards to their nuclear program.

Didn't Israel refuse to sign the NPT?

As they SHOULD!

Iran, has the right to nuclear weapons AND nuclear energy as much as the next country.

It's VERY hypocrtical for countries like the US and Israel to give them crap over something they already have.

In Israel case they are lying about it. And yes they did refuse to sign the NPT..

That was more or less who I was referring to by that comment, especially considering that they are leading this crusade against Iran's nuclear program. As has been highlighted here:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

as well as numerous other places, this is just another example of Israel (and the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, etc etc etc etc) expecting everyone they don't like to follow laws which they themselves refuse to whenever it suits them.

What makes it even more ridiculous in this case is the fact that Iran actually is obeying the law (at least for the moment) and Israel says: "That's not good enough, you must obey our decrees or we will be forced to pre-emptively attack you!" Reminds me of a parallel situation which happened to one of Iran's neighbours perpetrated by one of Israel's greatest allies back in 2003.
