Iran to attend NPT conference in NY
Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency says the Islamic Republic will participate in a conference to review the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
In May, the parties to the NPT will gather in New York for a pentennial review on the treaty.
“They know that the Islamic Republic of Iran will play a key and active role in the summit,” ISNA quoted Iranian Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh as saying on Sunday.
The West has accused Iran of seeking nuclear weaponry, and the US administration is pressuring its allies to impose a new round of sanctions on the Islamic Republic through a new UN Security Council resolution.
Soltanieh advised Washington to abandon its anti-Iran agenda during the NPT review conference.
