Iran Argues Its Sovereign Right ‘To Use Peaceful Technologies’ for Its Programs in Space Research

Jan. 2, 2022 (EIRNS)—Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh dismissed the U.S. complaints about Iran’s space program and its recent rocket launch. Scientific and research progress, including in the field of aerospace, is the Iranian nation’s inalienable right, said Khatibzadeh, and Iran’s resolve to pursue such technologies would not waver.

“No resolution prevents the Islamic Republic of Iran from continuing its space program and the related experiments, including in the field of satellites-carriers, thus, citing UNSC Resolution 2231 is purely fallacious and fundamentally untrue,” he said. “As previously stated, the Islamic Republic of Iran has the right to use peaceful technologies in the path of its scientific-research development according to international standards, and in so doing, it will not await the opinions of some countries that seek to impose their dictates,” he asserted.
