FM: UNSC Resolution on Iran a Hostile Move

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki stressed here on Sunday that Tehran views any UNSC resolution on sanctions against Iran as a hostile measure.Speaking in a joint press conference with his Armenian counterpart, Mottaki also described referral of Iran’s nuclear dossier to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) as illegal and politically-driven, and reminded that none of the reports presented by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General or inspectors speak of Iran’s diversion from peaceful to military nuclear activities or goals.

“When a completely technical issue is pretended to be a security problem, it means that they are politicizing the issue,” he reminded.

The Iranian top diplomat referred to the recent acknowledgement of the Zionist regime officials that the Israeli regime is equipped with nuclear weapons, and lashed out at the Security Council’s indifference to the issue, asking, “What measures has the UN Security Council adopted so far in this regard?”

The Iranian foreign minister also condemned the statements by the Zionist regime officials about accumulation of nuclear weapons in the region.

He further added that the Islamic Republic of Iran is pursuing the case of accumulation of more than 200 nuclear warheads in the occupied Palestinian territories by the Israeli regime through continued contacts with the Arab League Secretary General, President and Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), UN Secretary General, Chairman of the UN Security Council, Chairwomen of the UN General Assembly and IAEA Director General.

Mottaki said Tehran expects regional countries show a decisive reaction in this regard and initiate to adopt the necessary measures at the regional and international levels.

He also expressed the hope that the counterparty to Iran’s nuclear case would return to the negotiating table.

Elsewhere, the minister voiced Iran’s preparedness to take part in a consortium for the management of Armenia’s gas pipeline.
