Heidarpour: Iran Will Not Halt Production of 20% Enriched Uranium  under Pressure

Avaz Heidarpour Shahrezaei, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) also said that Iran's interaction with IAEA has been transparent and "we have made the necessary cooperation with the agency in removing ambiguities."

He said IAEA inspectors have been allowed to visit Bushehr power plant, Natanz, Fordo and Isfahan facilities and that IAEA has been provided will all necessary information to answer its questions.

The lawmaker said apparently the IAEA concern was over 20% enrichment of uranium which is produced for the Tehran nuclear site. "We consider this a success for Iran and the new IAEA report too aims to put pressure on us over the 20% enrichment."

He said the use of such words as "ambiguous" or "secret activities" in the new IAEA report on Iran was unprofessional.

Iran has urged the International Atomic Energy Agency to avoid “unreal” information in its reports on Iran, expecting IAEA Board of Governors to open a new chapter in cooperation with Tehran.

IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano's latest report on Iran's nuclear program included points which had not been mentioned in previous reports, and this came after Tehran agreed to a visit by an IAEA delegation to the country's nuclear facilities.

On August 24, Iranian Ambassador to the IAEA Ali Asghar Soltanieh said the deputy head of the agency's Safeguards Department, Herman Nackaerts, and his assistants paid a five-day visit to Iran's nuclear facilities.

Nackaerts also visited Bushehr nuclear power plant, the enrichment facilities in Natanz and Fordo, the nuclear fuel rods production factory in Isfahan, and the heavy water research reactor in Arak as well as the city's heavy water production plant.

Iran agreed with the IAEA's tour of the country's nuclear sites as a new step in line with the Islamic Republic's belief in transparency and cooperation with the agency and this issue has been mentioned in Amano's latest report, released on Friday.

Iran has also called on the IAEA chief to exercise “bravery” and refrain from repeating unreal points “under the US pressure.”

As the Islamic Republic's performance is in line with the agency's regulations, it seems that a part of the IAEA director general's report has been prepared under the US pressure.

The Board of Governors is expected to give a response to Iran's new steps during its five-day meeting slated to start on September 12.

The US and its allies accuse Iran of pursuing a military nuclear program, and used this pretext to pressure the UN Security Council to impose a fourth round of sanctions against Iran.

Iran says that as a member of the IAEA and a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has every right to the peaceful applications of nuclear energy for electricity generation and medical research.
