Iran: 'Documents will expose West's dishonesty'

Oh dear... Larijani, of all people, grasping at straws!

Thu, 03 Jul 2008 PressTV-Ir

Iran says it is ready to publish documents which would prove the West has broken the promises it made during nuclear talks with Iran.

At first, the Western powers demanded that Iran suspend its uranium enrichment program only for a short period as a confidence building measure during the talk but then they asked Iran to extend the suspension, said Ali Larijani, the Parliament Speaker and former top nuclear negotiator, during a ceremony held on Wednesday to mark the first anniversary of the launch of Press TV.

Larijani said that countries that try to hinder Iran's nuclear program are the same countries that signed contracts with the Shah regime to provide the country with nuclear technology despite the black human rights record of the regime.

The West, according to Larijani, promised that if Iran resolved ambiguities in its past nuclear activities, there would be no problem with its nuclear program, but after working out a modality plan to address the issue and answering the UN nuclear watchdog's questions the West is still exerting pressure on Iran.

Iran says as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), it is entitled to enrich uranium for peaceful purposes. The West, however, accuses the country of developing nuclear weapons.

Under the US pressure, the UN Security Council has so far slammed three rounds of sanctions against the country to force it into suspending its uranium enrichment work, with European states adopting further punitive measures against Iran, outside the framework of the UN Charter.
