Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 3
By Khalid Kazimov –- Trend:
Given the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) recent report, there is no way to stop settling Iran's PMD (possible military dimensions to Tehran’s nuclear program) file, Director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said.
Salehi said the IAEA report declares there has been no diversion of nuclear material in Iran’s nuclear program.
The IAEA examined the suspicious sites and found out that all Iran’s nuclear activities were peaceful, he added.
Salehi further added that the PMD file surely will be settled by the IAEA as they did not manage to provide any evidence against Iran.
Through a Dec. 2 report, the UN nuclear watchdog suggested although Iran took some limited steps towards developing a nuclear bomb, but the activities did not advance beyond feasibility and scientific studies.
The IAEA report was a condition of the July nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers.
According to the milestone deal, financial sanctions imposed by the West against Iran, its banking system and industry over Tehran’s nuclear program, are expected to be lifted in return for scaling down the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
Under the deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Tehran is committed to reducing the number of its centrifuges. The IAEA has been given the role of verifying Iran’s commitments under the lasting nuclear deal.
