Senior MP Blasts West for Seeking Monopoly over N. Technology

TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi denounced certain western countries for seeking monopoly in the field of nuclear technology.

The west still presumes that knowledge should be monopolized by a few countries but they should know that the world has changed, Boroujerdi told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting with Tehran Armenian Archbishop Sebouh Sarkissyan in a church on Saturday afternoon.

Boroujerdi went on to say that ran has developed rapidly and achieved nuclear science and other new technologies in the past 30 years.

Reacting to recent hostile statements by the US officials against Iran, he said that the US is angry at Iran's progress and new achievements in nuclear technology, adding that the west and the US should understand realities of Iranian nation and government and be interactive instead of provoking confrontation.

Responding to a question about the arrested Iranian reporter in Italy, the MP said that Foreign Ministry has summoned the Italian ambassador four times in this concern and Iran's embassy in Italy is following the case too.

Replying to another question concerning the latest statement of US President Obama about nuclear attack threat against Iran, Boroujerdi said it was expected that the US government, after 60 years of Hiroshima and Nagasaki tragedies, move in a direction to remove these tragedies from human being memories, but we still witness that they are keeping such memories alive.

He expressed the hope that the US president would revise his literature promptly.

Concerning the aim of the meeting with Tehran archbishop, he said that the parliament's national security and foreign policy commission has decided to have direct contacts with the non-Muslim communities in Iran in the new year by attending their religious centers and holding negotiations with their leaders.

He added that considering our constitution which is a national convention, naturally such visits and connections should happen.

Boroujerdi said that proposed problems in the meeting will be considered by the commission.

Archbishop Sarkissyan, for his part, evaluated the meeting 'good' and added that with continuation of such meetings, the officials will get closer to the realities.

He said such a meeting indicates good will of our officials and problems will certainly be solved.
