Iran Raps US Bias on N-issue

In an editorial, major US daily The New York Times claimed on June 12 that Iran continues to stonewall its nuclear activities, alleging that Tehran is still refusing to answer questions raised by inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) about a possible work on weapons designs and is blocking their access to sites, equipment and documents.

Iran's UN delegation has dismissed the allegations, saying that the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed the absence of any evidence of diversion of declared nuclear material to illicit activities.

Even the former head of the agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, admitted in a June 6 article in The New Yorker that during his tenure he never saw “a shred of evidence” suggesting that Iran was engaged in building a bomb, it added.

“As six former European ambassadors to Iran in their recent open letter have confirmed, Iran is not in breach of its international obligations by enriching uranium for its reactors (under the IAEA inspections and surveillance cameras), just as several other nations enjoy this right unimpeded by coercive sanctions,” the Iranian mission stated.

It emphasized that based on an Iran-IAEA work plan, Iran's nuclear file should have been treated as “normal” after the resolution of issues pertaining to the nuclear program.

 “Unfortunately, this has not happened, solely as a result of political pressure on the IAEA and a wealth of calibrated disinformation on Iran's peaceful nuclear program,” the delegation said.

The Iranian mission urged “American media to carefully scrutinize the facts regarding Iran's nuclear program objectively and without political bias instead of takinging at face value the disinformation on Iran.”


Iran has repeatedly and vehemently rejected the unverified Western allegations that it is pursuing a military nuclear program, insisting that as a member of the IAEA and a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has every right to engage in nuclear activities for all peaceful purposes.

The IAEA has been regularly conducting rigorous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence of the country's diversion from a civilian nuclear program.
