Spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Saeed Khatib Zadeh, said that what was agreed upon with the International Atomic Energy Agency comes in implementation of the decision of the Islamic Consultative Assembly to suspend voluntary work with the additional protocol, and the necessary monitoring will be during the next three months within the framework of the safeguards agreement.
In his weekly press conference, Khatib Zadeh referred to the details of the visit of the Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency to Tehran, adding that technical negotiations were held with the Atomic Energy Organization and a diplomatic and technical achievement was achieved .. Officials of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran and their colleagues worked diligently to accomplish what was mentioned in the joint statement and in accordance with the decision of the Council The Islamic Consultation.
Khatibzadeh stated that Iran and the Agency have agreed to a complete cessation of the implementation of the additional protocol and operations to reach the nuclear facilities stipulated in the nuclear agreement, and Iran’s obligations will be implemented within the framework of the safeguards agreement only, and the cameras will work, but the films will not be given to the agency.
Accordingly, he added, according to the law approved by the Islamic Consultative Assembly, the agency will not be granted any access to nuclear facilities outside the framework of the safeguards agreement, and no inspection will take place outside the framework of the safeguards agreement.
In response to a question about US President Joe Biden’s interest in dialogue with Iran, the issue of missiles and regional issues, Khatib Zadeh said: Biden must decide whether or not he will continue the failed maximum pressure policy practiced by the previous US administration, because the result of continuing will be the ultimate defeat of the states. And if they depart from this failed legacy, they should reform their policies.
The Foreign Ministry spokesman affirmed that Iran is linked with the 4 + 1 countries by agreement and that the United States left the agreement and even put obstacles in the way of not implementing its provisions, calling on the United States first to return to the agreement and then remove those obstacles, and then we can talk about negotiation.
Khatibzadeh stressed that Iran does not negotiate with anyone on missile issues and its internal security.
