IAEA Reports Verify Iran's Cooperation with IAEA

"The IAEA's numerous reports on Iran confirm Tehran's all-out cooperation with IAEA experts," Chairman of National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi told ICANA in an interview on Sunday.

Addressing the 23rd UN Conference on Disarmament Issues in Matsumoto, Japan, on Wednesday, IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano claimed that Iran was not cooperating with the agency in providing "credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities."

But according to Boroujerdi Iran has had "good cooperation" with the International Atomic Energy Agency based on the many reports filed by IAEA on Iran's peaceful nuclear program. "Cooperation with IAEA is on Iran's agenda as a policy," Boroujerdi noted.

He regretted that Amano has exceeded the boundaries of his authority about Iranian nuclear program and was following US provocations about Iran.

He said that the Islamic Republic of Iran will not respond to nuclear demands which go beyond the regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency. “Iran attaches no importance to such behavior,” Boroujerdi said.

“The Unites States is pressuring the agency to achieve its goals, and the IAEA director is willing to pass the pressures on to Iran,” he said.

Iran signed a Modality Plan in 2007 to resolve the outstanding issues about its nuclear program and fully responded to the questions of the IAEA within a timeframe envisaged by the Modality Plan.

After the Agency received Iran's responses to the outstanding issues, the former director-general of IAEA Mohamed ElBaradei verified the civilian nature of Iran's nuclear program.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi told the IAEA Board of Governors early July that Iran expects the UN nuclear agency to get back Iran's file from the UN Security Council after the two parties accomplished the Modality Plan.

In related news, another member of the Majlis said IAEA) has turned into an “executive channel” to meet demands of the West, particularly of the US.

Member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Majlis Parviz Sorouri rejected the allegations and said that Western countries failed to accomplish their objective in suspending Iran's nuclear activities through negotiations but now they seek to achieve this goal via the IAEA.

He described as “vague and unfounded” Amano's recent remarks about Iran and stated, “In technical terms, Iran has fulfilled all its undertakings within the NPT and the agency's reports have also verified the issue.” The Iranian legislator emphasized that dual policies of the IAEA have failed to affect the country's nuclear activities and said, “According to evidence, this international body has accepted the hegemony of global powers and acts accordingly.”

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 towards military purposes.
