Iran’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative in Vienna warned the UN nuclear watchdog that any counterproductive action could disrupt the talks on the possible revival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Iran PressEurope: Kazem Gharibabadi posted a tweet on Thursday, warning that “Any counterproductive action disrupts the negotiation process.”

He pointed to the talks in Vienna over reviving Iran's Nuclear Agreement 2015 known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), saying; “@iaeaorg  cannot disassociate itself from the destiny of the JCPOA.” 

Gharibabadi also emphasized that depoliticization, impartiality, independence, and professionalism were essential for the credibility of the IAEA and member states’ trust in its work.

“The Agency should plan for increasing cooperation and interaction with its MS’s rather incept mistrust,” the Iranian envoy stressed.

The quarterly meeting of the Board of Governors of the IAEA is set to be held on Monday in Vienna, Austria.

IAEA chief Rafael Grossi reported to the Board of Governors last Tuesday that its inspections in Iranian nuclear facilities had diminished significantly and faced serious limitations.

However, Iran has made it clear that all of its nuclear activities were in compliance with the NPT and Iran’s commitments under safeguards agreements.
