1938 update from DPA, with thanks to Jihad Watch News Editor Eric Schwappach:
Teheran – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ordered the conditional suspension of the additional protocol of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Fars news agency reported Saturday.
In a written order to his vice-president Gholam-Reza Aqazadeh, who is also head of the country’s Atomic Energy Organization, Ahmadinejad called for the implementing of the recently approved law to suspend all voluntary cooperation with the IAEA if the Iranian nuclear case is referred to the United Nations Security Council.
The Iranian parliament last month approved a bill urging the government to conditionally suspend the IAEA additional protocol.
According to the bill, the government will be urged to limit or even stop IAEA inspection of Iranian nuclear sites if Teheran is referred to the Security Council.
Ahmadinejad said last Wednesday that there should be no doubts whatsoever that the government will not retreat one inch from realising the legitimate right of the Iranian nation to have nuclear technology.
