Representatives in the Iranian parliament opposed the government’s agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency, which included the continuation of mandatory inspections and monitoring for a period of three months.
The head of the National Security Committee in the Iranian parliament, Mojtaba Dhu al-Nur considered that the government wanted to “deceive the deputies,” and called for the immediate cancellation of the Iran-Agency agreement.
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 does not have the right to reach an agreement that contradicts the parliament’s decision, and failure to implement the decision is a crime.”
For his part, Iran’s ambassador and permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna, Kazem Gharibabadi, announced that the agency will not be granted any inspection permissions that go beyond the mandatory guarantees.
Gharib Abadi said in a press statement on Monday that “Iran and the Agency have agreed to a complete cessation of the additional protocol and operations to access nuclear facilities stipulated in the nuclear agreement, and Iran’s obligations will be implemented within the framework of the safeguards agreement only.”
He also explained that “Iran will, within 3 months, record the information of some activities and monitoring equipment specified in the annex and keep them there, and the agency will not look at them.”
And he continued, “If the ban is completely canceled within 3 months, Iran will put this information at the agency’s disposal, and otherwise the information will be deleted forever.”
