Iran Rejects IAEA’s “Accusations”

But Will Maintain Cooperation With the Agency

The Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh said in an interview with Press TV today that the accusations contained in the report published by the agency on Wednesday on the nature of the Iranian nuclear program were simply a repetition of U.S. and Israeli claims meant to be used as a pretext to expand sanctions against the country.

The IAEA has repeatedly expressed concerns on the possibility of a military dimension to the Iranian program and had wanted access to Parchin military base near Tehran suspected of running a research program on nuclear weaponization. Iran rejects the suggestion, calling it Western-inspired accusation.

Soltanieh also said that despite the dispute, Iran was committed to its cooperation with the agency.

“After 10 years of the most robust inspection in the history of the IAEA, no evidence of diversion of nuclear material or nuclear activities to the prohibited purposes have been found and everything remains peaceful,” Soltanieh said (Press TV, 23 May)

HERE is a good rundown of the red hering that is the Parchin issue. (be sure to read the comments, too.)

Indeed it is a no ending dramas played and imposed by the well-known world's most likely to-be-warmonger, criminal and bully empire of the U.S.(along with its allies of the West and the East)-backed, -controlled and -commanded IAEA's lackey agents and spies(not really as the true representatives) against the sovereign state of the great nation of IRAN.
