NUCLEAR: Majles to Press the Government to Continue “Peaceful” Program
August 11, 2004 The Islamic government, under pressure from the world community to abandon its uranium enrichment program, came under pressure from the conservative lawmakers to resume the program, as the Majles on Wednesday put a bill to that effect back on the agenda. Deputy Majles speaker Mohammad-Reza Bahonar said the bill under consideration in the Majles is only a advisory resolution. Majles MPs accused the government of compromising on Iran’s right to have access to nuclear energy in their talks with European countries. Abadeh MP Mohamoud Mohammadi said the Majles bill is not against the IAEA inspections. But analysts say if the Guardians Council approves the Majles bill, the Khatami government would have less room for compromise and may take a harder line in its dealing with the IAEA, which may lead to Iran’s case being referred to the UN Security Council for sanctions.
