Iran’s Ambassador to the IAEA who was speaking at the Third Preparatory Committee for the 2015 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference said "The full realization of the member states’ right to the peaceful application of nuclear energy is among the fundamental goals about the NPT. There are procedures for all countries, including developed countries, to abide to and respect such rights; and to consider their commitments on the facilitation of the transfer of nuclear substances, equipment, and technology for peaceful applications.”
Reza Najafi added "To enjoy the full circle of national nuclear fuel, it is an indisputable governmental right for countries to instate national policies on the nuclear energy, a right which has to be respected.”
"The NPT maintains that nothing must affect countries’ indisputable right. The purport of the treaty is utterly clear on this and allows no kind other interpretation,” Iran’s ambassador to the IAEA maintained.
He also refuted claims to the "sensitivity” of the transfer of nuclear equipment to developing countries and maintained that such claims have resulted in the countries’ deprivation of natural access to nuclear resources.
