Socialist Spokesman From The European Parliament Martinez Affirm Iran Has Got The Right For Nuclear Arms

Iran's Ambassador to Belgium Ali Asghar Khaji held talks Tuesday with the Vice-President of the European Parliament Miguel Angel Martinez on promoting parliamentary ties between Iran and Europe.

The meeting focused on global and regional issues, including Iran's nuclear program.

Referring to the latest report of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Khaji said that the report proved all the baseless allegations against Iran, while showing Tehran's commitment to its international obligations and having a peaceful nuclear program.

Khaji added although Iran had 18 months to respond to all open questions, it answered all the remaining queries in less than six months.

He stressed Iran would continue its nuclear program within the IAEA's framework of rules and regulations and under the complete supervision of the UN nuclear watchdog.

Meanwhile, Martinez who is the spokesman of the Socialist Group in the European Parliament, said it was Iran's certain right to have a peaceful nuclear program.

He added that countries which have military nuclear activities are not allowed to protest Iran's peaceful nuclear activities.
