India Deal – Iran’s Take

Iran has been taking note of both the U.S.-India deal and Western treatment of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons for kind of a while.

Deputy head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Mohammad Saeedi “recently weighed in on the former,”: expressing concern that the deal “has violated ” the NPT.

Saeedi then elaborated a bit:

The method used by several nuclear states to transfer the technology to non-members of the NPT, will create new crises for the international community, he added.

According to the NPT, only signatories to the treaty can make use of the rights mentioned in the treaty, Saeedi noted.

Cooperation in the area of transfer of nuclear technology to the NPT non-members will endanger the treaty, he said, adding that although India is enjoying nuclear weapons it is not a signatory to the NPT treaty.
