IAEA Confirms Non-Diversion of Iran's Nuclear Activities

Iran's Envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency Reza Najafi said that the transparent nature and non-diversion of Tehran's nuclear program was confirmed in the IAEA's Wednesday meeting in Vienna.

"IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Safeguards (Tero) Varjoranta stressed in this briefing meeting that no diversion has been witnessed in Iran's nuclear program and the IAEA has been able to verify the implementation of all Iran's voluntary measures based on the Geneva agreement and during its extension," Najafi told the state TV on Wednesday afternoon.

IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano released his new report on Iran on Friday.
In relevant remarks on Saturday, Spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi blasted Amano for his repeated claims and legally-deficient report on Iran's nuclear program.

"Under such conditions that we are holding talks with the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) and have agreed to continue our peaceful nuclear activities with certain voluntary restrictions, the Agency points to the suspension of our activities based on the UNSC ('s resolutions against Iran)," Kamalvandi said.

He underlined that when the IAEA considers the UNSC resolution, it should also pay attention to the agreements that Tehran has made with the G5+1 and "therefore, the report by the IAEA director-general is legally flawed".

Noting that Iran has informed the UN nuclear watchdog of its reservations and considerations about the report, Kamalvandi expressed regret that the Agency continues to repeat certain points in its reports on Iran.
Amano's report came as he said in March that there had not been any diversion in Iran's nuclear activities that had been under supervision of the UN nuclear watchdog.

During a meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors, Amano said that the agency would continue its supervision and verification of the joint plan of action between Iran and Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany).
