Russia urges end to ‘illusion’ of IAEA’s anti-Iran resolution

The Russian ambassador to international organizations in Vienna has called for an end to an “illusion” of adopting a resolution at the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) against Iran, saying Moscow would vote against it.

“There should be no illusion. If a draft resolution on #Iran is tabled in the #IAEA Board of Governors Russia will vote against,” Mikhail Ulyanov said in a tweet on Friday.

He pointed to his tweet on Thursday and reiterated that there is no need to adopt a resolution against Tehran because it “would be not only senseless but extremely detrimental.”

The top Russian negotiator proposed diplomacy as the better road to take.

In his Thursday tweet, Ulyanov explained on the latest tensions between Iran and the IAEA and said the IAEA Board of Governors must call on both sides to overcome their problems.

“I believe the Governors at the session of the Board can and should call upon #Iran and the #IAEA Secretariat to overcome the current problems and to maintain traditional businesslike cooperation,” he tweeted.

In a phone call initiated by European Council President Charles Michel on Wednesday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi warned the United Nations nuclear watchdog against the consequences of its “unconstructive” attitude towards Iran.
