TEHRAN (Iran News) – Since September 2002 when the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) actually became sensitive and started probe on Iran’s nuclear program, almost all chiefs of this UN body have acted as the pawns of the big powers especially the West and its lord Israeli regime, and they have entered the scene to increase pressure on the countries especially on the Islamic Republic of Iran in order to get some concessions or condemn those states.
On Monday, board of governors of IAEA started their seasonal meeting to address different related issues on the nuclear programs of some countries especially the Islamic Republic of Iran and it seems the board is to issue a statement against Tehran over its nuclear program. Before the start of the meeting, IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi in a press conference took a negative stand against Tehran’s nuclear program.
Addressing the board of the UN nuclear agency, Grossi reiterated criticism of Iran’s cooperation in his recent report.
France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States have been discussing a possible resolution censuring Tehran at the quarterly board meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency, while China and Russia have warned this could upset negotiations over reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement.
The most contentious part of Grossi’s report referred to the claim of discovery of uranium traces at three sites in Iran linked to nuclear work carried out before 2003.
“Iran has not provided explanations that are technically credible in relation to the Agency’s findings at three undeclared locations in Iran,” he said. “Nor has Iran informed the Agency of the current location, or locations, of the nuclear material and/or of the equipment contaminated with nuclear material, that was moved from Turquzabad in 2018.”
Grossi told the board that he could not confirm Iran’s adherence to its ‘safeguards agreement’ as a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty “unless and until” Tehran provided “technically credible explanations for the presence of uranium particles of anthropogenic origin at Turquzabad, Varamin and ‘Marivan’ and informs the Agency of all current locations of the nuclear material and/or of the contaminated equipment.”
Of course it is not the first time Grossi reveals his double standard approach regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran’s dossier. Since 2002, all IAEA director Generals have acted in favor of the West like a lever for politicking Iran’s dossier.
Grossi’s predecessors, Mohamed ElBaradei from Egypt and Yukiya Amano from Japan, have all acted politically rather than technically in order to please the West and big powers in order to make Tehran or other countries give in to the West’s pressure under the guise of the IAEA.
And now it is Grossi’s turn to please his lords like his predecessors who admitted their mistakes and political stands after they stepped down from their posts. But Grossi should know this point that now it is 2022 and not 2002 that IAEA chiefs were able to politicize the dossiers in order to get concessions because now Iran is in a strong position with a revolutionary administration which will not give any concessions and will stick to the principles of defending the nation’s right for peaceful nuclear program
Reacting to Grossi’s West-pleasing claims, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said the country would give a “proportionate” response to any measure taken on its peaceful nuclear program during the ongoing meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)’s Board of Governors.
Asked about the possible adoption of an anti-Iran resolution during the Board of Governors’ meeting, Saeed Khatibzadeh, who was speaking in a televised interview on Monday, said, “We shall not pass any judgment in advance, but we will give our answers in proportion to any measure that is taken” by the Agency.
He added that Grossi has unfortunately issued a “hasty” report on Iran that he had already presented to the European Parliament.
Even the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said Tehran has given accurate answers to questions posed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), but the Agency bases its reports on the information provided to it by the enemies of Iran.
In an interview with Al Jazeera network, Mohammad Eslami said the director general of the IAEA, Grossi, lacks serious will to describe Iran’s answers to the Agency’s queries as convincing.
“The International Atomic Energy Agency relies on the intelligence reports [provided by] our enemies, topped by Israel,” Iran’s nuclear chief said.
Eslami made the remarks after the IAEA chief, in his introductory statement to the Board of Governors’ meeting on Monday, once again repeated his anti-Iran rhetoric, alleging that since February 23, 2021, the Agency’s “activities have been seriously affected by Iran’s decision to stop the implementation of its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA, including the Additional Protocol.”
Now it is time for the board of governors of IAEA and its director general to take technical decisions rather than taking political one because the West will not benefit politicization of the dossier because Iran is determined to defend its right based on its obligation under the NPT Safeguard and it will not accept any politicization of the dossier and such claims and bullies of Grossi are in vain and they will not be able to make Tehran surrender because one of the principles of the Islamic Revolution is to fight for its right and the West’s pawns and IAEA men in disguise will be unable to fool Iranians.
So the board of governors of IAEA is recommended not to take hasty and stupid decision or resolution against Iran.
