Our current issues and those of the IAEA are being pursued as usual

Iran's voluntary action to issue a permit to replace the damaged cameras, not in the form of a new agreement, which was made after obtaining three preconditions, and the process of technical-security inspections of the cameras by Iran is scheduled to begin tomorrow, Sunday, December 19th.

NOURNEWS - Over the past few weeks, in parallel with the Vienna talks between the representatives of Iran and the P4+1, talks between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency on current issues have continued.

These talks finally led to the voluntary action of Iran in issuing permission to the IAEA on December 15th, to replace the cameras damaged by the nuclear sabotage in the Tessa complex in Karaj, after fulfilling the three preconditions of Iran.

According to the discussions that took place on Thursday, December 16th, the Director General of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, presented his position on this issue in a press conference and announced the beginning of the process of replacing the mentioned cameras.

Iran's move, which was met with a positive response from China, Russia, and the United Nations, signaling Iran's goodwill and seriousness in the Vienna talks, destroyed the last excuses of the Western side to accuse Iran of not being serious in the talks.

Hereof; Nournews had an interview with Behrouz Kamalvandi, the deputy spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, which is as follows:

Th IAEA's repeated requests to the Islamic Republic of Iran to replace the damaged cameras at the Tessa Complex in Karaj are subject to three preconditions: "judicial-security investigations into the dimensions of sabotage", "condemnation of these sabotages by the Agency," and "technical-security review of new cameras by Iran before the installation."

Iran's voluntary action to issue permission to replace these cameras and install new cameras, happened not in the form of a new agreement, but after these three preconditions were met, and despite the lack of direct connection between the talks between Iran and the IAEA with the Vienna talks, it seems that it was able to fill the hands of Iran's negotiators, and this issue was raised at the meeting of the Joint Commission of the JCPOA on Friday evening.

Of course, the talks between Iran and the IAEA and between Mohammad Eslami and Rafael Grossi, had nothing to do with the Vienna talks and were proceeding normally in the form of current issues between the parties, so the claim that we did so under pressure is not true.

It is important to note that we did not say from the beginning that we would not allow the replacement and installation of cameras, but made it subject to those three preconditions.

On the other hand, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as a specialized and technical institution, has continuous interactions with the IAEA within the framework of safeguards, and these interactions should not take a political form. Although our interaction with the Agency can be indirectly linked to the Vienna talks, but in nature, there is no such connection.

In fact, linking the two areas is an attempt to politicize a technical-legal process in the media environment with the aim of psychological operations, so the Western and Zionist media are trying very hard to politicize our interactions with the IAEA, and unfortunately, there are tendencies in the IAEA in this regard, but we emphasize the separation of technical-legal issues from political issues.

I consider it necessary to mention that the issue of the possible impact of the IAEA surveillance cameras on conducting sabotage operations against Iran's nuclear facilities is extremely important for our security and judicial apparatuses, and therefore, we emphasized the need to carefully examine damaged and new cameras, and we stood on our ground until it came to fruition.

What happened at the IAEA Director General's press conference on Friday, when he showed one of the cameras in full in his interview for the first time and gave a detailed explanation, was certainly influenced by our sensitivities and the need to clarify the non-destructive role of the cameras in a sabotage operation.

Regarding the strictness of the security officers in the strict inspection that began with the observance of legal and ethical rules after the sabotage operations, it is necessary to explain that these strictures are not without reason, and there were cases of inspectors' actions outside their professional duties that were sensitive and we announced the agency.
