TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh confirmed on Thursday that the UN nuclear agency’s Board of Governors has backed off from passing a critical resolution about Iran.
Commenting on the latest developments in the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors regarding a controversial resolution against Iran, Khatibzadeh said on Thursday, “The plan for the resolution has been dropped after intensive diplomatic efforts in Tehran, Vienna, and the capitals of all members of the Board of Governors, specifically the three European states (France, the UK, and Germany), as well as support from China and Russia.”
He also noted that the new decision would save the road to diplomacy, already opened by Iran and the IAEA, and would pave the way for all JCPOA parties to honor their commitments in full.
“Iran hopes that the JCPOA participants could guarantee the full implementation of the JCPOA by everyone by taking this opportunity and with serious cooperation,” the spokesman added.
Tehran had already called on the three European parties to the JCPOA to avoid politicizing Iran’s case at the IAEA, warning the negative consequences of a resolution by the Board of Governors.
