Security Committee of the Iranian Parliament: We will prosecute Rouhani if he does not shatter the deal with the International Energy Agency
Iran’s guide, Ali Khamenei, pledged that his country would not yield to pressure, and affirmed that Iran could develop nuclear weapons, but it did not want that and would not change its approach to the agreement on its program.
Khamenei said, in a statement made today, Monday, during a meeting of leadership experts, with the participation of the country’s president, Hassan Rouhani, that the ceiling for uranium enrichment in Iran is not 20% purity and it will not be limited to this level, stressing: “We may take a decision to raise enrichment to 60 degrees. % According to the country’s needs. “
Khamenei stressed that Iran “will not yield to external pressure,” and “will not give up its position on the nuclear deal,” considering that the American and European approach towards it is unfair.
The Iranian guide explained: “The nuclear agreement is limited to several years, and in the event that the opposite party implements it, Iran will implement it as well.”
He made clear, however, that Iran is determined to obtain the nuclear capabilities it needs, and it is possible to turn towards 60% enrichment for non-military purposes. He also stressed that Iran will not back down on the nuclear file and will proceed aggressively to obtain nuclear capabilities.
This comes as the Iranian guide Ali Khamenei supported the parliament’s decision rejecting the agreement of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani with the International Atomic Energy Agency on nuclear inspection.
Khamenei called on the parliament and the government to cooperate in resolving the dispute over the implementation of the law, saying that the dispute between the two sides should be resolved “so that no two voices are heard from Iran.”
The Iranian parliament voted unanimously on Monday to reject the government’s agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency, while the Parliament’s Security Committee threatened to prosecute Rouhani if the agreement with the IAEA was not shattered.
This comes a day after Iran’s joint declaration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which provides for the suspension of voluntary inspections from tomorrow, Tuesday, deputies in the Iranian parliament opposed the aforementioned agreement, which included the continuation of the mandatory inspection and monitoring for a period of three months.
Mojtaba Dhul-Nur, head of the National Security Committee in the Iranian parliament, said the government wanted to “deceive the deputies,” and called for the immediate cancellation of the Iran-Agency deal.
He added that “the agreement between Iran and the agency that was concluded last night must be torn apart, otherwise the president will face trial for defrauding the parliament law.”
While MP Muhammad Hassan Asfari said, “The government has no right to reach an agreement that contradicts the parliament’s decision, and that failure to implement the decision is a crime.”
As for MP Malik Shariati Nayasir, he said that “due to the government’s questionable understanding with the International Atomic Energy Agency and the possibility of violating parliament’s nuclear law, consideration of the budget bill for the next year has been suspended.”
This is while Iran’s ambassador and permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna, Kazem Gharibabadi, announced that the agency will not be granted any inspection permits that go beyond the mandatory guarantees.
Gharib Abadi said in a press statement on Monday, “Iran and the Agency have agreed to a complete cessation of the additional protocol and operations to access the nuclear facilities stipulated in the nuclear agreement, and Iran’s obligations will be implemented within the framework of the safeguards agreement only.”
He added, “According to the law approved by the Iranian Shura Council (parliament), the agency will not be granted any operation permission for inspection outside the framework of the safeguards agreement.”
He also made it clear that “Iran will, within 3 months, record information about some activities and monitoring equipment specified in the appendix and keep them there, and the agency will not look at them.”
Ban canceled within 3 months
He continued: “If the embargo is completely canceled within 3 months, Iran will put this information at the agency’s disposal, otherwise the information will be deleted forever.”
But MP Fereydoun Abbasi, a former expert on the Iranian nuclear program and head of the Energy Committee in Parliament, said that “giving the agency the opportunity to monitor the agency for three months is a huge mistake.”
He added, “We should have stopped cooperating with the IAEA from the day that we ratified the law.”
He believed that if things continued in this way, the nuclear agreement would be negotiated to include the missile program and regional policies.
He claimed that these policies led to the assassination of Soleimani Fakhrizadeh, warning that “more assassinations will be on the way.”
Nevertheless, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh described the agreement as a “good achievement in diplomatic and technical terms” and “within the framework of the parliamentary decision.”
The Iranian Atomic Energy Organization said in a statement that “the purpose of continuing the necessary verification and monitoring” agreed between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency is for Iran to retain regulatory information for a period of 3 months until the sanctions are lifted.
The organization also stressed that for security reasons, it keeps the annex to its agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency secret, which includes the main sites of Iran’s nuclear program.
According to the Iranian parliament resolution approved by the Guardian Council last December, the Iranian government is obligated to expel IAEA inspectors and suspend Iran’s voluntary implementation of the additional protocol unless the financial, banking and oil sanctions are lifted by February 23.
