Iran criticizes UN atomic agency for lack of cooperation

Tehran, Oct 5 (Prensa Latina) Iran on Tuesday criticized the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) due to lack of cooperation for the peaceful nuclear program of the Islamic Republic.

Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, reiterated that Tehran works in the sector with ethical principles and does not seek to manufacture nuclear weapons.

In any case, he added, the Strategic Action to Lift Sanctions and Protect the Iranian Nation’s Rights Act, passed by Parliament, increases the nuclear capabilities of the industry in the country.

Pressures cannot stop Iran’s peaceful program, summarized the spokesman, who commented that, despite three sabotages last year, the Iranian nuclear industry is in good condition.

Iran and the 5+1 group (the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China plus Germany) sealed in 2015 the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or nuclear deal, which Washington abandoned in 2018 and imposed measures contrary to what was agreed.

Since April 2021, Iranian authorities and the other signatories of the JCPOA have been negotiating to find a way so that the United States could return to the pact.
