A senior Iranian legislator said Tehran will not stop its nuclear activity, despite international pressure, state news agency Fars reported on Monday.

“Tehran will not accept any kind of suspension or halt and all Iranian nuclear facilities will continue their operation,” said Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, rapporteur of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran complies with the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) rules and regulations and cooperates within that framework, but it will never accept the Additional Protocol,” he said.

Naqavi Hosseini said Iran is ready to negotiate on the degree and grade of nuclear enrichment with world powers. His comments came as western media reported that Iran would ratify the additional protocol, and commit to more IAEA inspections if, at the next round of talks with the world powers, there is an acknowledgment of Iran’s nuclear rights and sanctions against it are lifted, Fars said.

    See to destroy the world you need the world third largest nuclear arsenal you need to hit multiple targets globally hundreds with multiple warheads it is not just the kinetic impact, radiation you have to induce a nuclear winter.

  • So God the creator of Heaven and knows to put the enemies of Israel down because Israel work for the mercy of mankind in the World. Obama indirectly led America down the nation of revelation because we simple people stand for America but Israel wall of protection of innocent people in the. Iran is a friend of devil who use watch people his fellow Muslim to occupy the whole world. God will bless Israel the of Abraham and Issac.

    Over at Israel Hayom, Dore Gold has thoroughly detailed how false the Iranians’ claim is that their activities have nothing to do with the development of nuclear weapons. Anyone who buys for a second that we’re about to see the emergence of a kinder, gentler Iran that wants to back away from its aspirations to extend Khomeinism is a fool.

    Of course they won’t stop. They are determined to nuke Israel off the face of the map.

    Obama has given Iran the green light to go full steam ahead. Europe hasn’t either the muscle or the will to stop Iran. Israel now has absolutely no choice other than to strike … solo … ASAP
    The world will hate us regardless, but it must be done!

    I would not trust Iran or its murderous rulers to do anything; it is trying to get the sanctions lifted while it gains time to complete the nuclear bomb capability it is close to.

    The severe sanctions should NOT be lifted UNTIL Iran destroys its nuclear plans and product and machinery and renounces plans to destroy Israel.

      Yes, every sane man knows this. Bibi knows this. But evidently Obama and Catherine Ashton cannot read the writing on the wall… or they do not want to. So the world will reap the consequences. Overall, the Western world does not have the will to stop its own downward slide and destruction. Israel is at the forefront of the battle.

      So we can only pray. It is the G-d of Israel who will protect and defend Israel. Meanwhile America leads Israel ‘down the garden path…to “peace” and disarmament and giving away territory and releasing murderers.

      How wonderful that Israel has a true friend in Canada.
