Belarus Foreign Minister Sergei Martinov said here Tuesday that the US has no right to speak on behalf of the rest of the world.
"The US has no right to talk on behalf of other countries; even if there is a threat at work it should be dealt with under the framework of IAEA regulations. In this framework, we consider the IAEA Chief Mohammed ElBaradei's recent Iran report as a positive sign," said Martinov when asked about the US claim that there is a global consensus against Iran over its peaceful nuclear program.
He made the remark in a press conference on the sidelines of the NAM Ministerial Meeting on Human Rights and Cultural Diversity (September 3-4, 2007).
Martinov said there is no justification that Iran's nuclear case should be investigated at the UN Security Council.
He said as an NPT signatory, Iran has the right to benefit from the Treaty's advantages and rights.
