No one-sided collaboration with IAEA

NOURNEWS – Due to the unconstructive approach of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in confronting Iran's peaceful nuclear program, especially the mostly political statements of Director General Rafael Grossi, collaboration cannot be expected to be fruitful.

With the influence of three European countries, the US, and the Zionist regime, it is anticipated that the latest quarterly report of the agency, like previous cases, may have a biased nature.

On February 27, Reuters claimed to have obtained the latest report of the IAEA regarding Iran's peaceful nuclear program. The agency provides its report every three months on the implementation of the Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement in Iran and its quarterly report on the JCPOA to the 35 members of the Board of Governors.

Reuters, citing the agency's report, stated that Iran's enriched uranium stockpile with 60% purity has decreased by 6.8% to 121.5 kilograms.

The report also mentioned an increase in Iran's enriched uranium stockpile with 20% purity, reaching 712.2 kilograms.

The news, based on the IAEA's three-month report, emphasized that Iran's enriched uranium stockpile has increased by 1038.7 kilograms since the previous report, reaching 5525.5 kilograms.

Iran has not yet responded to Reuters' published news.

The spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, in response to a question about the US position on the release of the new IAEA report on Iran, stated that, as far as he knows, the report has not been made public, and he does not comment on an unpublished report.

However, he expressed concern about Iran's continued nuclear program, including the ongoing production of high-purity uranium, with no civilian justification.

Throughout the past year, Iran has closely interacted with the agency based on a strategy of continued cooperation, conducting continuous technical and legal negotiations on the agency's monitored cases. Various issues have been discussed in Iran-IAEA negotiations, including disagreements on issuing permits for agency inspectors, resolution of four alleged sites, nuclear material equivalency, and uranium-84 particles. Agreements have been reached on some of these issues.

Several significant cases, including the two locations out of four, the agency's ambiguity about 84% enriched uranium particles, and the non-equivalence of nuclear materials at the Jaber Ibn Hayan Multipurpose Laboratory, have been resolved in the talks between Iran and the agency, showing considerable progress.

Although due to the lack of official confirmation of Reuters' news by official authorities, it is not possible to comment on this report, which has only been partially released, considering the unconstructive trend of the agency in confronting Iran's peaceful nuclear program, especially the mostly political statements of IAEA chief Rafael Grossi, it can be predicted that the latest quarterly report of the agency, like previous cases, may have a biased nature.

Unfortunately, in recent years, the agency and the director-general have been under intense pressure from European countries and the Zionist regime to politicize Iran's cases, and these pressures usually intensify on the eve of Board of Governors meetings.

Initial indications suggest that, for various reasons, a resolution against Iran will not be issued in the upcoming meeting of the agency's Board of Governors. However, based on the usual practice, it is likely that three European countries and the US will take steps to issue a non-binding statement against Iran in the next week's meeting.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, alongside close cooperation with the agency, has always been very active and innovative in asserting its legal rights in collaboration with this international institution. Naturally, any attempt to politicize against our country's peaceful nuclear program in the Board of Governors cannot go unanswered by Iran.

Iran, in line with the March 4 statement, has continued its cooperation with the agency and has fully complied with all its commitments under the Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement (CSA). Therefore, any political behavior in confronting our country's peaceful nuclear program could be accompanied by appropriate reactions from Iran, such as increasing the level and amount of enrichment and installing advanced centrifuges, which will not be good news for the agency, Europe, and the United States.
