Envoy hits back at US, E3 for accusing Iran of non-cooperation with IAEA

Iran’s ambassador to the Vienna-based international organizations lashed out at the representative of the US and the European troika at the IAEA Board of Governors for deploring what they have called Tehran’s insufficient cooperation with the UN nuclear agency.

In comments on Monday night, Kazem Gharibabadi responded to the remarks from the representatives of the US, the UK, France and Germany at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors following a spiteful report from the UN nuclear watchdog who have accused Iran of insufficient cooperation.

He said the IAEA cannot remain silent on the Zionist regime’s attacks against the Iranian nuclear sites and at the same time expect Iran’s cooperation at the same facilities that have been damaged after the Israeli acts of sabotage.

“The Agency (IAEA), the US and the European troika must bear in mind that they cannot remain silent on the Israeli regime’s terrorist measures and refuse to stop them and also call for the continuation of monitoring and existence of the Agency’s (IAEA’s) cameras at the facilities affected by the terrorist sabotage,” Gharibabadi said.
