Here is the report
“The British regime is renewing the Trident nuclear system which will last at least for one century,” Deputy Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Baqeri said at the end of second International Conference on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Monday.
“In a quite illegal move, the British regime signed a nuclear deal with France to share know-how needed to build and renovate nuclear bombs and to reduce spending to expand their nuclear arsenal,” he added, Fars news agency reported.
He further disclosed a reality about domestic situation in the US and stated, “The budget allocated by the US in 2011 for storage and development of nuclear weapons showed more than 50 percent increase in comparison with 2001.”
However, according to US statistics, 45,000 Americans die annually due to lack of social welfare insurance, Baqeri noted.
The SNSC official said the US has been a major obstacle in the way of an effective fight against nuclear disarmament for years, adding that Washington only agreed with negotiations about a Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty (FMCT) but it still opposes inspection of its fissile material depots.
He pointed to unconditional US support for Israel, saying “The US provides all-out support to the Zionist regime (Israel) which is the only possessor of nuclear warheads in the Middle East and has so far decried to implement the international law and resolutions of the UN Security Council.”
“The Israeli regime has a background filled with crimes, oppression and occupation and is expanding the number of its nuclear warheads at its covert nuclear facilities.”
Baqeri, who is a member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team, said the US has stationed more than 200 nuclear warheads in Europe and emphasized that the move is a blatant violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
According to the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), the US plans to develop tactical nuclear weapons from Europe to the Persian Gulf region, he added.
The official further elaborated on Britain’s role in acts of terror against Iran, saying, “The UK government officially and explicitly announced that Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities should be stopped through an operation based on information.”
He noted that an Iranian nuclear scientist was assassinated exactly 10 days after the announcement and asked, “Isn’t it a clear sample of nuclear terrorism?”
On November 29, 2010, unidentified terrorists attached bombs to the vehicles of Iranian university professors Majid Shahriari and Fereydoun Abbasi, and detonated them.
Professor Shahriari was killed immediately, but Dr. Abbasi and his wife sustained minor injuries and were rushed to hospital.
Iran has blamed the Israeli regime and Western powers for the terrorist attacks.
