STATEMENT BY A GROUP OF IRANIAN PERSONALITIES ON THE ATOMIC CRISIS OF THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN

20th February 2006

The concerns of the international community about the nuclear programs of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the response by the Iranian regime to these concerns, have resulted in a tense and dangerous situation detrimental to stability and peace in the Middle East and far beyond.

We as concerned Iranians of diverse political outlooks and tendencies wish to express our common position on this vital international issue and plead for international understanding and backing of these positions.

1. We firmly believe in the inalienable right of the Iranian people to acquire and exploit nuclear technology and know-how for peaceful purposes.

2. We regard proliferation of nuclear weapons as a major threat to world peace, and support the international Non-Proliferation Treaty and other peaceful international initiatives for controlling the spread of nuclear weapons.

3. We regard nuclear weapons as weapons of mass destruction whose use are morally deplorable and legally indefensible, and support all international efforts towards nuclear disarmament and the elimination of all nuclear weapons.

4. We condemn the clandestine nuclear activities of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the past, and call for and support full transparency of Iran’s nuclear programs.

5. We are suspicious of the true aims of the Iranian regime in its nuclear program, and share the concerns of the international community in this regard. We are of the opinion that in the absence of a democratic system in Iran, and with the stated aims and intentions of the Islamic Republic, it is incapable of securing the trust of the international community in its nuclear program.

6. We are of the opinion that a halt in the enrichment program in Iran would not harm Iran’s capability in nuclear industry. Iran has a great pool of expertise and know-how in nuclear industry both inside and outside the country, and in a democratic Iran these could be called upon to work on a transparent nuclear program for peaceful purposes.

7. In these circumstances and in order to alleviate international concerns about Iran’s nuclear program, we support the call by the international community for a complete halt to the enrichment program in Iran in exchange for the supply of all necessary materials and technology for Iran’s nuclear power program.

8. We strongly oppose any military intervention in Iran and regard such action as detrimental to democracy in Iran and peace and security in the region, and plead with the world community to channel all its resources through the democratic Iranian opposition for change in Iran rather than act through military means.

9. We firmly believe that democratic change in Iran is the best guarantee for solving the international impasse over Iran’s nuclear program. We call on the international community to support the Iranian people’s campaign for democracy and human rights as a means to solve the nuclear program issue.
