The international community must accept Iran's civilian nuclear program or incur "heavy losses," a senior Iranian lawmaker told the official Islamic Republic News Agency on Sunday.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the head of Iran's Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said that the P5+1 - the international group with whom Iran has agreed to engage over its nuclear program - must acknowledge that Iranian scientists have produced nuclear fuel for the country's nuclear power plants, and for Tehran's research reactor that has helped develop medical nuclear technology.

Boroujerdi advised the P5+1 to avoid a "policy of confrontation" with Iran over its nuclear program, and called on the United Nations Security Council to lift sanctions on the Islamic Republic, which targeted Iranian assets, banned the supply of nuclear-related materials to Iran, and imposed an arms embargo.
