Iran's ambassador and permanent representative to international organizations based in Vienna criticized the International Atomic Energy Agency for its silence over the Zionist regime's nuclear program stressing this dual approach sends a negative message to members of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Iran PressIran news: Kazem Gharibabadi on Twitter stated that silence and negligence about Israel’s nuclear program sends a negative message to the NPT members that “being a member equals accepting the robust verifications while being outside the Treaty means to be free from any obligation and criticism, and even be rewarded?”.

Iran's diplomat said: "Silence over Israel's nuclear program sends a negative message to NPT members that membership in the treaty equates to accepting the strongest verification and oversight while staying out of it means getting rid of any commitment, criticism and even leads to receiving rewards."

In an interview with Energy Intelligence a few days ago, and in response to the question of why talking so much about Iran's nuclear program and not addressing Israel's, Rafael Grossi said: "Israel is not a member of the NPT and has not even signed it, while Iran is a party to the treaty and has legal obligations in this regard."

Referring to the Zionist Regime's nuclear weapons and massacre, Majid Takht Ravanchi, the Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations, recently called on the international community to force Israel to join the NPT unconditionally and accept IAEA's oversight inspections.

According to various reports, the Zionist regime has about 300 nuclear warheads that make it capable to destroy the world.

The regime has so far refused to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and has US support in this regard.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly called on the international community to press Israel to join the NPT and to accept International Atomic Energy Agency inspections without having a nuclear weapon. 219
