Iran praises IAEA impartiality in its mission
Iran’s Permanent Ambassador to International Organizations in Vienna hailed IAEA impartially despite the efforts made by ill-wishers and enemies of Iran.
Iran press/Europe: Iran’s Permanent Ambassador to International Organizations in Vienna, Austria, Kazem Gharibabadi said: "Despite the efforts made by ill-wishers and enemies of Iran to distract the attention of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the international community, Iran and the agency are enjoying constructive cooperation."
According to the Iran Press, Gharibabadi also stressed the importance of the IAEA impartiality in its mission.
He also deplored the fact that the IAEA is placed under considerable pressure by some international bodies for political purposes.
He added that just like in the 13th report, in the 14th one, the IAEA Director General, Yukiya Amano, reiterated the fact that the IAEA has continued monitoring and verifying Iran's commitments based on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Highlighting Iran’s commitments, Kazem Gharibabadi said as repeatedly mentioned the complete implementation of commitments by all parties is regarded as a base for keeping JCPOA.
He called on the remaining parties to guarantee Iran's interests from the JCPOA by taking suitable practical steps if they want to keep Iran inside the deal.
Yukiya Amano told board members on November 22 that Iran continues to abide by the nuclear deal reached in 2015.
A new report by the UN nuclear agency (IAEA) said Iran continues to comply with the restrictions on its nuclear activities under a 2015 deal it signed with major global powers, even as the United States re-imposed sanctions against Tehran.
On May 8, 2018, US President Donald Trump announced America's withdrawal from the nuclear deal, and re-imposition of the highest level of sanctions and other economic penalties on Iran. The move has been condemned by the international community.
