Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran's Parliament Alaeddin Boroujerdi Monday called on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) not to be influenced by Washington's political pressures over Iran's nuclear activities, the English language satellite Press TV reported.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran expects (the Director General of IAEA) Yukiya Amano to act independently in handing over a report on Iran's nuclear issue," Broujerdi was quoted as saying.

Amano is to hand over to the IAEA's 35-member Board of Governors his seasonal report on a whole range of issues, including Iran's nuclear activities, on Monday, according to the report.

"As an IAEA member, Iran has accepted all the regulations of this international body and, hence, has acted in accordance with those regulations," Boroujerdi said.

"Given this all-out cooperation, Iran expects Amano, as the most senior authority at the agency, to act in line with the agency's rules and regulations, and not to be influenced by U.S. political pressure," the report quoted him as saying.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast reiterated on Sunday that Iran will not bow to pressures meant to discourage the country from pursuing its nuclear rights.
