TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called on the IAEA Board of Governors not to allow the enemies of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and the world powers to “jeopardize Iran's supreme interests”.
“BoG should not allow JCPOA enemies to jeopardize Iran's supreme interests. E3 should not be an accessory, after failing own JCPOA duties. We've nothing to hide. More inspections in Iran over last 5 yrs than in IAEA history. An agreeable solution is possible, but Res will ruin it,” Zarif tweeted on Thursday.
France, Britain and Germany, all parties to Iran’s nuclear deal, have submitted a draft resolution to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors calling on Iran to stop denying the agency access to two old sites.
Iran’s ambassador to the Agency made it clear that the country would not open its territory to nuclear inspections only based on continuous allegations provided by its own enemy, even if it is evident that inspections will debunk those allegations.
“...as a matter of sovereignty, no country opens its territory to the inspections only based on continuous allegations provided by its own enemy, even if it is evident that the result of which will prove those allegations to be false. I would like to ask the Member States to put themselves in our shoes and see if they are ready simply to engage with the Agency every now and then based on unsubstantiated,” Kazem Gharibabadi said in a recent speech before the IAEA Board of Governors.
