VIENNA (Reuters) - A senior Iranian official said on Friday that any military attack on Tehran's nuclear facilities could lead to its withdrawal from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

He said Iran's envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, in astatement to the IAEA Board of Governors is composed of 35 countries that in the event of an attack, the government may have then to expel IAEA inspectors Atomic Energy and the development of centrifuges in places "safer."

And threw Soltanieh's comments highlighted concerns several Western nuclear experts fear that the military attacks on Iran in order to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons may backfire has paid to transfer its entire nuclear program to secret locations.

And increase speculation the possibility of an Israeli bombing of Iran which Thmtha seeking to acquire a nuclear capability, while Tehran denies the charge and says that Israel's nuclear arsenal perceived as a threat to regional security.

Soltanieh said in remarks before the Board of Governors that if Iran were to attack, "there is a good chance to force Parliament (Iranian) government to stop inspections by the IAEA or even with the worst-case scenario to withdraw from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty."

In response to comments Soltanieh said Ehud Azoulay, Israel's ambassador to the IAEA, "I think they will do so anyway in the near future so I am not surprised."

And went on to say "when they Powell nuclear explosion would withdraw on what I think," he said, adding that he believes that Iran "emulate" North Korea.

North Korea the first country to withdraw from the treaty in 2003 and also refused entry inspectors International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of its nuclear sites. Pyongyang conducted nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009.

Iran said one of the biggest oil-producing nations that its nuclear program is peaceful and aimed at generating electricity.

, Such as Pakistan, India, Israel has not signed the treaty, as it is not confirmed or denied possession of nuclear weapons, despite the belief of experts in security and nonproliferation as have a few hundred nuclear weapons.

Israel has said it would sign the treaty and renounce nuclear arms, provided an expanded peace agreement with the Arab states and Iran states to ensure its security.

Israel considers Iran and the United States the main threat to the nuclear Non-Proliferation in the world. Iran says Arab states that Israel's nuclear capabilities threaten regional peace and security.

In a statement from the 11-page laced tone challenge - prompting Western diplomat to say he was "very pessimistic" about a new round of talks between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in mid-December - Soltanieh said that Iran's nuclear program "should be locked immediately" and return operations inspections by the United Nations with regard to his country to "normal."

"This is the only way which encourages Iran to show more flexibility to take voluntary steps."

The IAEA is seeking to resume the investigation turned off long ago on suspicion possibility that Iran researches concerning the atomic bomb and Western officials have accused Tehran to disrupt.

Soltanieh said that nuclear weapons useless not only lead to tension and that any military action against his country would not discourage them from enriching uranium.

Enriched uranium has both civilian and military uses and called for a series of decisions issued in the UN Security Council since 2006 that Iran halt its nuclear work, which the Islamic republic rejects.

Soltanieh said "Iran has mastered enrichment technology .. can simply replace the damaged facilities."

He added in a lengthy statement to the Council that Iran "is fully prepared to find a solution to save face and through negotiations to achieve a breakthrough of the current stalemate."

A Western diplomat criticized a statement Soltanieh Council said it contained "very silly allegations."

Reaching talks between Iran and six world powers - the United States, China, Russia, France, Germany and Britain - which aims to find a peaceful solution to the conflict a decade ago to a dead end in June, when the meeting adjourned without reaching a conclusion.

Both sides say at the moment they were willing to resume dialogue as soon after the re-election of U.S. President Barack Obama for a second term and is expected to host diplomats meet again in Istanbul December or January.

Iran has faced Western sanctions tight hopes the United States and its allies forced them to curb its nuclear program. But Soltanieh said, "not to Western sanctions no significant impact on its enrichment activities."
