Enemy has no choice but diplomacy: AEOI spokesperson
The spokesperson of the AEOI says the enemies of Iran aim to deprive the country of its nuclear technology by fabricating claims about the country's peaceful nuclear program.
The spokesperson of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Behrouz Kamalvandi, pointed out on Saturday that the enemies of Iran that have been seeking to harm the country's nuclear industry have no choice but diplomacy.
Kamalvandi indicated that there will be good news soon regarding reactor and radio medicine areas, stressing that Iran's progress in these areas is being made despite the country being under increasing pressure from imposed sanctions.
The Iranian spokesperson rejected claims that food and drugs are exempt from sanctions, noting that radio medicines are also included in the sanctions.
He pointed out that an Iranian company active in producing radio medicines was sanctioned by the United States although it explained to the US Treasury Department several times that it had no activity other than producing radio medicines.
Kamalvandi considered that the enemies of Iran aim to deprive the country of its nuclear technology by regularly fabricating claims about the country's peaceful nuclear program.
Tehran cooperated with IAEA on alleged nuclear sites
It is noteworthy that the AEOI spokesperson highlighted in September that Iran fully cooperated with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding three sites the UN nuclear watchdog claimed to have been "undeclared nuclear sites" in Iran.
Kamalvandi rejected a statement made by IAEA Director-General Rafael Grossi claiming that there has been a lack of monitoring of Iranian sites, stressing that Grossi's words had "no legal basis."
"The Islamic Republic of Iran has been fully cooperative regarding the three alleged sites brought up by the agency and has sent information and answers to the agency's questions and has also held meetings to resolve the ambiguity," he noted.
The Iranian spokesperson called on the IAEA not to make judgments based on fabricated documents the Israeli occupation provided with specific political goals in mind, noting that this type of judgment is against the principle of neutrality and professionalism.
"Since the IAEA has audited all of Iran's declared nuclear materials and there are no disagreements over the calculated materials, simply observing contamination in a few places cannot be considered as implying the presence of undeclared nuclear materials," he indicated.
In late August, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian demanded that the IAEA drop the issue of what the Western parties claim to be "undeclared sites", as momentum builds to revive a 2015 nuclear deal.
The nuclear deal, formally known as the JCPOA, was tanked after the United States unilaterally withdrew from it in 2018 under then-President Donald Trump, who accompanied his arbitrary decision with the imposition of harsh sanctions on Iran.
The IAEA's Board of Governors adopted in early June a draft resolution submitted by the US and the E3, criticizing Iran for what they claim were incomplete answers given to the IAEA on uranium traces at "undeclared sites".
These claims were quickly refuted by the head of the AEOI, Mohammad Eslami, who said that Iran has neither secret or unwritten nuclear activities nor unreported nuclear sites.
