He outlined Iran’s views on peaceful nuclear activities and said given the growing need of the nations for energy, especially electricity, it is necessary for the nation to get access to clear energy resources.

Noting that the nuclear energy plays an important role in progress of countries, he underlined the IAEA main agenda of helping countries to develop research for peaceful purposes and stressed the necessity of respecting the rights of all countries which are signatories to the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

He regretted numerous efforts so far to restrict use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and highlighted the fact that Iran, based on religious, strategic, and international policies, has always rejected use of mass killing weapons.

He said the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) lead to resolving of an unnecessary crisis, adding that fundamental changes in the United Nations Security Council approach towards the issue of Iranian nuclear program should be carried out simultaneous with all the IAEA boarding council resolutions against Iran.
