TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister and senior negotiator Seyed Abbas Araqchi rejected reports about existence of any secret point or document in the recent Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signed with the world powers.
“There is no secret documents in the JCPOA and its annexes,” Araqchi said in a recent meeting with members of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission on Thursday.
Asked by legislators about the methods used by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect Iran’s nuclear sites and concerns about access to Iran’s military centers, he said, “I think that these concerns have been obviated in the JCPOA and we fortunately could prevent the western side’s excessive demands and didn’t accept anything beyond the international laws.”
Araqchi expressed confidence that the IAEA inspectors will not have access to Iran’s military and sensitive documents.
In relevant remarks on Monday, Araqchi said that Tehran and the IAEA have compiled a new roadmap to settle the issues related to Parchin military site in Iran.
“The issues related to the past which are wrongly described by the IAEA as Possible Military Dimensions (PMD) have been discussed between Iran and the IAEA and God willing, they will be resolved based on the new roadmap signed by Mr. (Yukiya) Amano (the IAEA chief) and (Ali Akbar) Salehi (the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran) and the arrangements made,” Araqchi said.
“The road is in the same direction of the past agreements with a new roadmap and some related annexes which are Iran-IAEA documents and that’s why they have not been released as no other country would release the documents that it has with the Agency,” said Araqchi.
