Members from both Houses of Parliament urge P5+1 to insist on inspection of Iran's military sites. Tehran must come clean on possible military dimensions of its nuclear programme.
Without unfettered access for IAEA inspectors to Iran's military sites and nuclear scientists, any nuclear agreement between the P5+1 and Tehran would be meaningless.
Iran's nuclear proliferation is a major global concern. With only days left until the 30 June deadline for an international agreement, Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has ruled out freezing sensitive nuclear work and allowing UN Nuclear Agency monitors to access Iran's military sites and nuclear scientists.
A nuclear-armed fundamentalist regime in Iran, which remains the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and engaged in politically motivated violence and repression at home, would continue to be a major threat to world peace and security.
The Tehran regime came to the negotiation table from a position of weakness, as a result of crippling international sanctions. Repeated concessions by the P5+1, in particular by the U.S., have emboldened Tehran to demand more.
Iran's democratic Parliament-in-exile, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), on Thursday published a detailed report showing that Iran has stipulated that there will be no access to military sites or nuclear scientists for the inspectors and no stopping of Research and Development (R&D) in the nuclear field.
The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) agrees with Iranian opposition leader Mrs Maryam Rajavi who told a major Iran Freedom rally in Paris on 13 June that in order to halt Tehran's drive to obtain nuclear weapons, the UN Security Council resolutions must be fully implemented, uranium enrichment must be halted completely and all suspect sites, military or otherwise, must be inspected. In addition, the regime must also provide answers to the military dimensions of its nuclear project and make its nuclear experts available for IAEA questioning.
In the Early day motion 342 IRAN AND NUCLEAR WEAPONS, last year, over 100 MPs from House of Commons reiterated this position and warned that Tehran is engaging in deceptive tactics to find a way out of nuclear impasse. The MPs also urged the British government to take these factors into account in its dealings with Iran.
In the interest of world peace and security, the P5+1 must end the concessions to the mullahs and hold them to account before signing any final agreement with Tehran.
