IAEA Reports on Iran Serve US Interests

There currently exists "an atmosphere of mistrust" between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the IAEA; and the UN nuclear agency is acting in favor of US political interests, said Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, a member of the Foreign Policy and National Security Commission of Iran's Parliament (Majlis), on Monday.

He added that the IAEA had formerly adopted an ambiguous approach toward Iran but is now clearly trying to meet Washington's demands.

Falahatpisheh also termed the recent stances against Iran's civilian nuclear program as unprecedented in the history of inspections ever carried out by the IAEA.

The remarks come as IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano claimed on Monday that the agency "has received further information related to possible past or current undisclosed nuclear-related activities that seem to point to the existence of possible military dimensions to Iran's nuclear program."

Similarly in a May 24 report, Amano alleged that the agency had received new unspecific information indicating that Iran may not be merely developing nuclear energy for civilian purposes.

Iran's Ambassador to IAEA Ali Asghar Soltanieh said on Sunday, “If the IAEA announces the modality issue to be closed, Iran would be willing to address all ambiguities that may rise after the modality [plan]; however, this will not be possible as long as the agency fails to fulfill its commitments."

In a statement last week, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Fereydoun Abbasi rejected the allegations leveled against the Islamic Republic in a response letter, and said that on the basis of the modality plan agreed between Iran and the IAEA in 2007, the agency should announce Iran's nuclear issue closed.

The United States, Israel and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program.

As a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, Iran maintains that it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

The IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence indicating that Iran's civilian nuclear program has been diverted to nuclear weapons production.
