TEHRAN, June 14 (Bernama) -- Mahmoud Erol Kilic, Secretary-General of the Parliamentary Union of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) in a statement Sunday condemned the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution 1929 imposing sanctions on Iran, Iran's IRNA news agency reports.

In a strongly worded statement, Erol Kilic, described the move as politically-motivated aimed to prevent the country from vindicating its legitimate rights on peaceful use of nuclear energy.

"The OIC Parliamentary Union expresses outrage over such resolution and is to strongly condemn any sanctions against each of Islamic states. Such resolution runs counter to the principles of human rights and international rules and regulations," IRNA quoted him as saying.

On June 9, the UNSC adopted resolution 1929 imposing an additional series of sanctions measures against Iran's proliferation sensitive nuclear and missile programmes.
