Iran’s Atomic chief:

Tehran avoids any nuclear activity that disrupts IAEA ties

Iran’s atomic chief says Tehran is opposed to any activity that disrupts relations with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Tehran avoids any nuclear activity that disrupts IAEA ties
Mohammad Eslami, the head the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), said on Wednesday that the country is still committed to a memorandum of understanding reached with the IAEA earlier this year that outlines the way the country should comply with the agency’s general directives and rules, including the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and its safeguards agreements.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran does not accept any nuclear activity that could disrupt ties with the IAEA,”he told reporters on the sidelines of a Cabinet meeting in Tehran.

He said, however, that Iran will continue to observe a parliament law ratified some four years ago which outlines how it should comply with the terms of a 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers.

The comments came after IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi claimed earlier this week that Iran has yet to clarify some ambiguities surrounding its nuclear program.

Eslami denied there are any ambiguities and said that nuclear activity in Iran is under constant inspection and monitoring by some 120 inspectors approved by the IAEA.

Meanwhile, he also said that the AEOI adheres to a piece of legislation approved by the Iranian parliament in early 2020 dubbed the ‘Strategic Action To Eliminate Sanctions and Defend Iranian Nation's Interests.’ 

He continued to report that the AEA Director General Rafael Grossi will visit Iran soon.
