TEHRAN (Iran News) – Chinese Mission in Vienna in a message expressed deep regret over the recent resolution adopted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors against Iran.
“China deeply regrets at the adoption, today, of IAEA Board Resolution on Iran’s safeguards implementation, with the caveat of such a move’s huge implications on the prospect of the #JCPOA. China & Russia voted against the above resolution,” Chinese Mission wrote on its Twitter account on Friday.
Earlier addressing the IAEA BoG meeting on Thursday, Chinese Ambassador in Vienna Wang Qun referred to recent tensions with regard to Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), saying: “The root causes of this situation lie in the unilateral and bullying practices of the U.S., as evidenced by its unilateral withdrawal from JCPOA and its policy of maximum pressure towards Iran,” IRNA reported.
“In addition, the U.S. has not only ended the sanctions waiver covering all remaining JCPOA-originating nuclear projects, but also openly pushed for the extension of the conventional arms embargo against the country in the UN Security Council in an attempt to completely destroy JCPOA,” he added.
In spite of Russia and China serious opposition, the E3 anti-Iran resolution was approved in IAEA BoG meeting on Friday.
In their statement, the European troika under the support of the US urged Iran to stop preventing the IAEA inspectors from having access to two sites in th country.
Iran had earlier said that IAEA’s demand was based on the Zionist regime’s claims.
Meanwhile, in response to the adoption of the anti-Iran resolution at the IAEA’s Board of governors, Iran’s ambassador to the Vienna-based international organizations Kazem Gharibabadi stated that the Islamic Republic of Iran completely rejects the resolution and will take “appropriate and necessary” action in response.
