Iranian MPs react strongly to Amano's remarks on Iran nuclear activities

In his recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Amano allegedly has announced that the Islamic Republic of Iran has breached its nuclear obligations twice by coming close to the production of heavy water last year.

Currently, a number of Iranian lawmakers have strongly reacted to the recent approach of IAEA regarding Iran’s nuclear agreement.


** Politically Motivated:

Talking to ICANA, Rapporteur of the Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Naqavi Hosseini  described the recent stance of Amano on production of Iran’s heavy water as politically motivated.

He said some signatories to the landmark nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries have not fulfilled their commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the international bodies, IAEA in particular, have not shown any reaction in this respect.

The lawmaker underscored that the Western countries are accused of violating the JCPOA.

Naqavi Hosseini reiterated that the Islamic Republic of Iran has been committed to its obligations to the JCPOA.

The senior MP said that the latest claims about Iran's alleged violation of the JCPOA are “baseless” and “unsustained.”

He noted as per the nuclear deal, Iran should sell its heavy water stockpile more that 130 metric tons to other countries or transfer and store its produced heavy water in the third country.

He added the IAEA should carry out its duties in a fairly manner rather than taking a political approach towards Iran.


** Propaganda Atmosphere:

Meanwhile, Mohammad Ebrahim Rezaei, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said the western countries are trying to create a propaganda atmosphere against Iran to pretend that the Islamic Republic of Iran is distancing itself from the JCPOA.  

Since the implementation of JCPOA, the IAEA has been precisely monitoring Iran’s nuclear activities and has so far inspected the country’s nuclear facilities and centers for several times, he said.

The lawmaker underlined that IAEA has for several times confirmed that Iran is implementing the landmark nuclear agreement it signed with the P5+1 group of countries in 2015.

He said the United Nations nuclear watchdog do not have enough courage to announced that the Western countries are violating their commitments under the JCPOA.

As required by Iran’s nuclear agreement with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the US, France, Britain, China and Russia – plus Germany, Tehran could produce 20 tons of heavy water per year and is obliged to keep its heavy water stockpile below 130 tons.

Thanks to high quality of Iran’s heavy water, the country has sold its heavy water to several states including Russia and USA in the past several months, the lawmaker added.

Rezaei reiterated that so far several other countries have voiced their willingness to buy Iran’s heavy water.


** Chapter VII of UNSC:

Touching upon the recent Amano remarks, Mohammad Javad Abtahi a member of Parliament Committee on Education and Research said the recent Amano’s remarks are aimed at justifying the US and western countries’ violation of JCPOA.

As per the previous IAEA’s reports, Iran has not only been committed to the JCPOA but has taken more measures beyond its commitments regarding the nuclear deal, the lawmaker added.

Abtahi also urged the Iranian officials to fully stand up against the "excessive demands" of such countries and their affiliated bodies.

It seems that the American has started a new game on Iran’s nuclear issue, he added.

The MP underscored that the Americans are using the so-called violation of JCPOA by Iran as a pretext to persuade the international community to put Iran’s nuclear case once again under the United Nations Security Council under Chapter VII.

Chapter VII of the Charter allows the Security Council to determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression and to take military and non-military actions to restore international peace and security.
