According to News i Agency’s International Group, the three European countries of the IAEA Board in a joint statement on Thursday evening called on Iran to fully cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency.
“France, Germany and the United Kingdom would like to thank Rafael Grossi, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, for his report on the implementation of the Safeguards Agreement in Iran,” the statement said.
The three European countries noted that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors issued a resolution in June 2020 expressing concern over what they called “Iran’s lack of fundamental cooperation in answering the IAEA’s questions.”
“The resolution called on Iran to cooperate fully with the IAEA and to comply with the IAEA’s requests without further delay,” the statement said.
“We urge Iran to cooperate fully with the International Atomic Energy Agency and to provide all information and clarifications required by the Secretariat without further delay,” the European Troika stressed in another part of the statement.
“It is only through the full cooperation of Iran that the IAEA Director General can resolve outstanding safeguards questions and remove this issue from the Council’s agenda,” the three European countries have stated.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a new quarterly report on the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal that the talks had not been fruitful and that Iran had refused to comment on the uranium particles discovered at several Iranian sites. This report was provided to the members of the Board of Governors on May 31 (June 10).
One year after the US withdrawal from the UN Security Council, the Islamic Republic of Iran fulfilled all its obligations under the agreement to give European countries that promised to compensate for the effects of Washington’s withdrawal from the agreement an opportunity to work to fulfill this promise.
One year after the US withdrawal from Borjam, Tehran announced that it would reduce its obligations under Borjam in a few steps, given that European countries had not fulfilled their promises. The reduction of Iran’s obligations took place under the provisions of the Borjam nuclear agreement.
The Islamic Republic of Iran, after taking 5 steps to reduce its commitments, finally announced on December 6, 2009 that it no longer faces any operational constraints (including enrichment capacity, enrichment percentage, amount of enriched materials, and research and development).
Iran as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency has the right to acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
In addition, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors have visited Iran’s nuclear facilities several times but have never found any evidence that the country’s peaceful nuclear energy program is deviating from military purposes.
In addition, in 2015, Iran reached an agreement with the so-called P5 + 1 countries to resolve tensions over its nuclear program. Despite the International Atomic Energy Agency’s acknowledgment of Iran’s adherence to all of its obligations, the US government unilaterally withdrew from the agreement in May 2016.
Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reached an agreement in March last year to provide voluntary access by Iran to two designated locations and to facilitate IAEA verification activities. This agreement was extended last week for another month (until June 24, which coincides with July 3).
The International Atomic Energy Agency says the Additional Protocol allows the International Atomic Energy Agency to have wider access to information and facilities in Iran.
Last year, Iran’s Islamic Consultative Assembly passed a law requiring the government to suspend IAEA inspections in Iran if sanctions against Iran are not lifted.
