Iran: Bush must accept realities after report

US President George W Bush should accept the realities and stop making further accusations against Iran following a US intelligence report on Iran's nuclear activities, a senior Iranian official said on Tuesday.

Iran: Bush must accept realities after report
US National Intelligence Estimate released said that Iran halted its atomic weapons programme in 2003 and seemed less determined to develop nuclear arms than the Bush administration previously believed.

"The (US intelligence) report is de facto confirming the report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and proved once again Iranian claims that all its nuclear programmes are just for peaceful and civil(ian) purposes," said Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the parliamentary foreign policy and security commission.

Boroujerdi told the news network Khabar that the report also neutralized "plots by Zionist (Israeli) circles" in the United States which had pushed the White House to put pressure on Iran "with untrue charges which even the US intelligence rejects."
