Senior Iranian MP criticises UN-drafted nuclear deal

A senior Iranian lawmaker made clear on Saturday he was against a U.N.-drafted nuclear fuel deal, a news agency reported.

Under the U.S.-backed plan, Iran would send most of its low-enriched uranium (LEU) abroad for further processing to turn it into fuel for a Tehran research reactor.

"The demand that we should deliver all enriched nuclear material to other countries so that they would supply Tehran's fuel needs is completely out of the question," ILNA news agency quoted MP Kazem Jalali as saying. He is the spokesman of parliament's national security and foreign policy committee.
