TEHRAN (Iran News) –Western countries in recent centuries and especially in recent decades have openly taken and openly revealed their double standard approach regarding any issue which they benefit, and nuclear program in countries is one of those disputes which have exposed this double standard which makes the world people laugh.
On Monday once again some major Western countries in a statement took a stand against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program which is another double standard policy regarding other countries.
The United States, France, and the United Kingdom on Monday reiterated their position that the Islamic Republic should never achieve the capability to build nuclear weapons.
In a ministerial statement released for the Tenth NPT Review Conference on Monday, the countries said the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has reduced the risk of a devastating nuclear war, and further reduction of that risk must be a priority for all NPT states parties and for this Review Conference.
Reiterating that Iran must never develop a nuclear weapon, the statement read, “We are committed to addressing regional proliferation crises wherever they arise.”
They expressed regret that, despite intense diplomatic efforts, Iran has yet to seize the opportunity to restore full implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), urging Tehran “to return to full implementation of the JCPOA and UNSCR 2231 and to cooperate on an urgent basis with the IAEA in resolving questions related to possible undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran as required under its NPT-required safeguards agreement.”
“Nuclear weapons, for as long as they exist, should serve defensive purposes, deter aggression, and prevent war. We condemn those who would use or threaten to use nuclear weapons for military coercion, intimidation, and blackmail. Such actions are profoundly dangerous and contrary to the purposes of the NPT and the UN Charter.”
All NPT Parties, nuclear-weapon States or non-nuclear-weapon States, have a duty both to demonstrate and to promote responsible behavior and restraint to advance all three pillars of the treaty: disarmament, nonproliferation and peaceful uses of nuclear energy, science, and technology, they said.
With a short glance at this one-sided statement, one can realize this double standard policy of the West against Iran because Tehran has repeatedly said that it does not pursue nuclear bomb and its nuclear program is peaceful but the West insists on its own claim.
The most interesting thing is that these countries which blame Iran have all A-bombs but try to stop other countries to avoid having A-bombs or even pursuing peaceful nuclear programs.
This comes at the time while everybody in the world knows Israel has many A-bombs in its arsenals but international bodies are quiet and even these Western countries do not try to take any action against this fake regime.
On Monday UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, warned that the world is in danger with humanity being only one misstep away from “nuclear annihilation.”
“Today, humanity is just one misunderstanding, one miscalculation away from nuclear annihilation,” Guterres warned at the opening of the 10th review conference of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) at the UN’s headquarters in New York which was held after a two-year delay due to the COVID pandemic.
The UN chief urged all nations to “put humanity on a new path towards a world free of nuclear weapons.”
“Eliminating nuclear weapons is the only guarantee they will never be used,” the UN chief insisted.
But so far no UN chiefs ever has tried to stop Israel from its nuclear program and arsenals to show the world that Israel enjoys immunity against any condemnation because of its offences.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported the slogan of world free of A-bombs and its envoys in the UN have repeatedly asked for it but unfortunately its proposals have gone unnoticed by the UN and especially by the West.
A couple of days ago Iran said the Israeli regime’s advanced atomic military program poses a serious threat to international security and the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), urging the UN nuclear agency to fulfill its responsibility in this regard.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani said in a series of tweets, “The advanced atomic military program of the apartheid Israeli regime and the regime’s continued objection to placing its nuclear facilities under the Safeguards Agreements [of the International Atomic Energy] Agency and not joining the Non-Proliferation Treaty are serious threats to international security and the non-proliferation regime.”
The IAEA is expected to fulfill its responsibility in this regard in accordance with its statute, he added.
But it seems efforts of some independent countries like Iran are in vain and the UN and its agency IAEA are indifferent against Israel and they have just focused on Iran to put pressure on it under any pretext but they should know that Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities are based on its NPT obligations and it has not committed any office and the country or countries which should be blamed are Israel and Western countries which have A-bombs in their arsenals and they are not ready to tolerate other countries to have even peaceful nuclear programs.
The West is better to stop its double standard policy and its blame game against Iran because Iran will continue its nuclear program based on its NPT commitments and as its Supreme Leader has reiterated the country does not seek making A-bomb.
