Tavakoli attacks Nuclear Treaty Proposal

Nuclear Iran Watch: Iran's hardliners attack EU nuclear deal - Tavakoli: ""Making such concessions indicates that we have indeed been after manufacturing nuclear weapons," Tavakoli said on behalf of MPs critical to the agreement.

"While we have accepted all relevant commitments, the Europeans just gave us ambiguous promises," he added.

The MP said that the parliament unanimously approved last month a draft bill obliging the government to follow peaceful nuclear technology, including nuclear enrichment for its fuel cycle.

"The government must respect the bill, as well" Tavakoli said."
