US in no position to make comments on Iran-IAEA cooperation

TEHRAN, Sep. 28 (MNA) – Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami has condemned the pressures on the International Atomic Energy Organization (IAEA) as politically motivated.

Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami made the remarks on Tuesday upon arriving in Russia to meet with the Director-General of Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation (ROSATOM) Alexey Likhachev. 

"The US claim about the need for the IAEA to have access to the Karaj centrifuge parts plant is null and invalid," Eslami said.

The AEOI head noted, "Washington is not in a position to comment on how Iran and the IAEA work together. Unfortunately, the IAEA, under pressure from the United States and the Zionist regime, has replaced political cooperation with a political approach."

According to the AEOI chief, “the IAEA’s insistence on installing CCTVs in places that were damaged in the terrorist operations is in line with the goal of the same [sabotage and terrorist] operation against Iran, and we will never accept it.”

Eslami added that IAEA demand regarding the damaged sites that have yet to be rebuilt and their legal cases are still open will not get anywhere.

Further, on the Moscow trip, Eslami said, "This trip is taking place in continuation of regular consultations between Tehran and Moscow with the aim of developing and strengthening cooperation between the two countries in the field of peaceful nuclear energy."
