Iran says UN resolution aiming at sanctions unacceptable
Adjust font size:

The spokesman of National Security Commission of Iran's parliament said Sunday that Iran does not accept any United Nations Security Council resolution aiming at sanctions, the official IRNA news agency reported.

The resolution is political shunt and is issued to prove that the Iran case has not been forgotten, Kazem Jalai said, adding that "anti-Iran resolution lacks any content and is more like a declaration."

The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution on Saturday to reaffirm its previous resolutions on Iran and demand full compliance from the Islamic Republic.

Six major countries -- the United States, Britain, China, France, Russia, Britain and Germany -- agreed on the text of the resolution on Friday in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly's annual debate.

Resolution 1835 reaffirmed its previous resolutions on Iran since July 2006 but contained no new sanctions.

It called on Iran "to comply fully and without delay with its obligations" under the resolutions, and to meet the requirements of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors.

According to an IAEA report recently released, due to Tehran's block, the UN nuclear watchdog had been unable to make much progress in investigating Iran's suspect nuclear program.

The United States and its allies have accused Iran of developing nuclear weapons, but Iran insists that its nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes.

On Thursday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad shrugged off international sanctions threat.

"Whatever they do, Iran will continue its activities. Sanctions are not important," he told a news conference, noting that "the era of such threats has ended."

Iran till now has been under three UN sanctions over its disputed nuclear program.
