Iran to Participate in NPT Review Conference

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran is expected to take part in a review conference which will be held in New York on Monday to confer about the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).



Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Mohammad Ali Hosseini at the head of a delegation comprising a number of senior Atomic Energy Organization officials as well as Iran's permanent representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh will attend in the review conference.

In the review conference held every five-year, participants would confer on nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and peaceful use of nuclear energy.

Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under three rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West's illegitimate calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.

Some analysts believe that the meeting will be fruitless considering the big powers' attempt to keep their special privilege and breach the obligations enshrined by NPT.
