Fada Hossein Maleki, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, told IRNA on Monday, adding that the contents and nature of the recent IAEA resolution against Iran is not based on expertise facts and figures, and that the resolution has been issued concurrent with IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi’s recent visit to the occupied lands of Palestine; so, it has been prepared under the pressure of Zionist lobbies.
The way that the technical and expertise independence of the IAEA has been undermined this time is unprecedented, the legislator said, noting that the UN nuclear watchdog has lost its technical and expertise credibility in the eyes of world public opinion.
Maleki went on to say that the US and some Western states have backed approving the anti-Iran resolution to divert public opinion from the current crisis in Ukraine, because the West believes that initiation of recent developments in Ukraine caused removal of the Vienna talks from agenda.
In the existing circumstances, the US and other Western countries are involved in the Ukraine war and fanning the flame of this conflict; thus, it can be possible that the war ends up in a point, where the US may be caught up in; so, they have resorted to the strategy to divert world public opinion from the Ukraine war to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, the Iranian MP argued.
The member of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee also said that Iran will not retreat particularly when it comes to defending the Islamic country’s national interests, and that the Iranians will act powerfully to let the West know that the Islamic Republic is not feeble at all.
On Wednesday, the US and three European countries of Britain, Germany, and France offered an anti-Iran draft resolution to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors based on allegations made by the Zionist regime on Iranian nuclear activities.
The anti-Iran resolution was approved with 30 votes in favor, two votes against (Russia and China), and three abstentions (India, Libya, and Pakistan).
In reaction to the approval of the resolution, the Islamic Republic of Iran halted certain collaborations with the IAEA, which were beyond safeguards agreements and were conducted by Iranians to show their good faith.
The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) issued a statement on Thursday, declaring that the Islamic Republic of Iran has so far shown extensive cooperation with the IAEA, which has not been appreciated, so the AEOI decided that beyond safeguards cameras measuring On-Line Enrichment Monitor (OLEM) and flowmeter to be deactivated from today.
However, the AEOI emphasized that more than 80% of the cameras available by the agency are safeguards cameras, which will continue to operate.
Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs also announced that as a result of the unconstructive approach by the IAEA and the approval of the anti-Iran resolution, the Islamic Republic has taken reciprocal practices, including installment of advanced centrifuges and deactivation of ultra-safeguards cameras.
The European trio who are also signatories to the nuclear deal issued a joint statement to show their protest against Iran’s response, while they themselves are the ones who did not abide by their commitments under the JCPOA.
As many as 260 Iranian Members of Parliament signed a statement on Sunday in condemnation of a recent resolution against Iran by the IAEA Board of Governors, arguing that the UN nuclear agency has lost its technical validity.
The statement denounced the Agency’s move as excessive and politicized.
The Iranian lawmakers said that repeated IAEA reports confirmed that Iran has in good faith provided the Agency with the most possible access and inspection chances while these accesses have not been used to help remove the Western claims against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program.
