The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Behruz Kamalvandi, explained that they will submit such equipment to technical examination in view of the suspicion that they somehow contributed to sabotage at the Karay plant.
Speaking to the Fars news agency, Kamalvandi said Tehran demanded a condemnation statement from the IAEA on terrorist actions committed against Iranian nuclear facilities.
“Iran’s voluntary action to issue a permit to replace these cameras is not contemplated in any agreement, but after the fulfillment of preconditions,” the spokesman specified.
Kamalvandi explained that local experts are concerned that the saboteurs resorted to the recordings to carry out their criminal action last June.
For this reason, IAEA officials agreed to provide a sample camera for in-depth analysis by Iranian specialists.
Iranian nuclear facilities and their specialists are targets of criminal actions and a recent example is the November 2020 assassination of scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, which then Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu boasted about.
