S. Africa Urges UNSC to Admit Outcome of Iran-IAEA Cooperation

A00769953.jpgTEHRAN (FNA) – A senior official with South Africa’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs urged members of the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday to avoid discrediting the body by making unmeasured moves concerning Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities.

He made the remarks while commenting on recent talks held by members of Group 5+1 and South Africa over a new anti-Iran resolution.

South Africa would announce its final position on the issue in the next meeting of the UNSC on Iran, Foreign Affairs chief director for United Nations Affairs, Xolisa Mabhongo, told reporters in a press conference in Pretoria.

He urged the UNSC member states to admit the progress made as a result of Iran’s cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Mabhongo stressed that South Africa insisted on finding a lasting and peaceful solution for Iran’s nuclear case.

He also warned the UN Security Council of taking measures which would probably slow down the present cooperation between Iran and UN nuclear watchdog.
