IAEA Report Signifies Iran’s Push to Uphold Multilateralism: Envoy

Iran’s envoy to international organizations in Vienna said the International Atomic Energy Agency’s most recent report that confirms Tehran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal reveals the Islamic Republic’s goodwill in preserving multilateralism in the international relations.

In comments on Friday night, Iran’s permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna, Kazem Gharibabadi, said the IAEA’s fifteenth consecutive report attesting to Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA “signifies the Islamic Republic of Iran’s goodwill in maintaining multilateralism in the international relations and certifies that it has honored its international commitments.”

“This report, like the fourteen previous ones from the (IAEA) director general, affirms that the agency has continued to monitor and verify Iran’s nuclear commitments under the JCPOA since the first day of implementation of the JCPOA,” he added.

He also noted that the new report has explicitly mentioned the Iranian Supreme National Security Council’s order to halt implementing certain JCPOA commitments of Iran under the clauses 26 and 36 of the accord, and has also cited the resumption of heavy water production at Iran’s Arak nuclear facility after a two-month hiatus for preventive maintenance.

The envoy said that cooperation between Iran and the IAEA is in a “constructive course” despite the developments surrounding the JCPOA, adding that the other parties’ failure to take “tangible and practical” measures to honor their commitments has threatened the fate of the accord.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is determined and serious in taking the steps announced in its recent decision,” Gharibabadi underlined, stressing that in order for the JCPOA to survive, the remaining parties must take immediate and appropriate measures within a defined timetable to ensure Iran’s interests under the deal.

In its latest quarterly report on Friday, the IAEA confirmed that Iran has stayed within the main restrictions of the 2015 nuclear deal and was abiding by the main terms of the agreement, including the most sensitive issues of its stockpile of enriched uranium and level of enrichment.
