Iran should fulfil its obligations as NPT signatory: PM

world Updated: Sep 26, 2009 12:51 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday said Iran should fulfil all its obligations as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT), while it also enjoys rights under that agreement.

Answering a question on US, Britain and France threatening to impose sanctions against Iran for secretly pursuing uranium enrichment facility, Singh told a press conference here that Iran issue did not come up during the G-20 Summit.

"Our position is that Iran as a signatory to the NPT has all rights to peaceful use of atomic energy and also should carry out its obligations," he said.
