“As the IAEA Director-General Grossi stated in his speech, political pressure and issuance of the resolution against Iran is not the solution, so problems cannot be solved by inciting accusations,” Eslami underlined.

“The International Atomic Energy Agency should deal with issues in a professional manner and accordance with the 2015 agreement,” he added, noting that the United States had withdrawn from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May 2018 unilaterally and breached all its obligations.

“Not only the United States failed to live up to its commitments, but also it did not allow other JCPoA parties, including UK, Germany and France to live up to their obligations,” he said.
