Parliament's most powerful committee has decided to vote on a bill that would force the government to block intrusive inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities by the UN nuclear agency if it refers the country to the UN Security Council, state radio reported Monday. When the bill becomes law, as is expected, it will strengthen the government's hand in resisting international pressure to abandon uranium enrichment, a process that can be used to produce fuel for nuclear reactors or an atomic bomb. The Foreign Policy and National Security Committee approved the outline of the bill late Sunday and will vote on it Tuesday, the radio quoted lawmaker Mahmoud Mohammadi as saying. Once the committee has approved it, the bill will go to a full session of parliament for debate and a vote. If parliament passes the bill, it will go to the Guardian Council, a hard-line constitutional watchdog, for ratification.
