MNA– Alireza Rahimi, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Iran’s Parliament, said on Saturday that US questioning IAEA for Iran’s nuclear activities is an unconventional intervention in the international body’s affairs.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has informed the Agency of its activities in full transparency and within the framework of the Additional Protocol and all visits from Iran have been in the framework of the Protocol, Rahimi reiterated.
He added that there are no unannounced visits in this protocol, and all visits to Iran’s nuclear facilities have been made within the framework of the IAEA’s monitoring protocols.
“In this regard, Iran has made necessary cooperation beyond the Agency’s expectations and has not committed any breach on the framework of the standards of the Agency,” Rahimi noted, adding any visit to Iran’s military sites would need the Islamic Republic of Iran’s permission and the visit to military installations would not be available due to closure of the so-called Possible Military Dimensions (PMD) file. “With the PMD file being closed, there will not be any room for recent US baseless allegations.”
The Foreign Ministry has taken timely and constructive positions in this regard; the Islamic Republic of Iran has consistently fulfilled its obligations; US approach is different from the European Union, and it is not constructive, Rahimi underlined, pointing to US historic hostile approach with Iran which would pose threats to the implementation of JCPOA and to the interests of the involving parties.
