The 16th Summit of the NAM was held in the Iranian capital Tehran August 26 to 31.
An Iranian lawmaker says members of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) should take practical measures to oppose the US and Israeli nuclear weapons.
“The nuclear disarmament should start with the United States and the Zionist regime of Israel,” Mohammad Esmaili noted on Wednesday.
Referring to the final resolution of the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran, Esmaili said “The 120 members of the Non-Aligned Movement have emphasized on their opposition to weapons of mass destruction, whereas the US as the only country that has used the nuclear weapons, claims to be against them.”
Member of Iran's Majlis (parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee noted that “nuclear energy for all, nuclear weapons for none” is a general an acceptable program for the Iranian nation, adding that according to the NAM Summit resolution, all member states should take the necessary measures to oppose weapons of mass destruction stockpiled by the US and the Zionist regime of Israel.
Esmaili also stated that members of the Non-Aligned Movement should prosecute the US and the Zionist regime of Israel for the production of the nuclear weapons and raise this issue at the UN on the basis of legal documents.
The lawmaker said by taking a united step, NAM member states will be able to condemn the US and the Zionist regime of Israel at the UN for the proliferation of the nuclear bombs.
Esmaili emphasized that Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy activities are totally transparent and without ambiguity.
“Iran’s invitation of the NAM officials to visit the country’s nuclear facilities indicates Tehran’s transparency in dealing with international bodies,” Esmaili said.
He noted that the US and the Zionist regime of Israel have caused problems for the global security as producers of the weapons of mass destruction, and opposing their nuclear arsenals is necessary because the nuclear bombs threaten global security.
