US Trying to Take Control of IAEA

“The US government is trying to take the independence of the IAEA away from it, and control this international organization from New York,” Soltanieh said on the sideline of the second International Conference on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation in Tehran on Sunday.

“When the Americans raised the issue of Iraq and making weapons of mass destruction, the agency and its nuclear weapons inspector Hans Blix did not accept it,” Soltanieh said.

The Iranian envoy added that Washington, however, “used this pretext to attack Iraq and used this as an excuse to add the Additional Protocol to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).”

Soltanieh explained that the US planned to add another Protocol to the NPT through making claims about Iran's peaceful nuclear program.

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

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

“…this US policy failed and we will not allow a binding document beyond the Additional Protocol to be approved in the IAEA,” Soltanieh concluded.

The second International Conference on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation began in Tehran on Sunday.

Nuclear experts from more than 40 countries, ambassadors and representatives from international bodies such as the United Nations and the IAEA are attending the two-day conference in the Iranian capital.
