Eslami: Iran will not retreat to heavy psychological warfare
The Chairman of the AEOI says that the recent move by Western states in submitting a draft resolution against Iran is a political measure supported by the Israeli occupation.
Chairman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Mohammad Eslami, stressed Wednesday that Tehran has neither secret, unwritten nuclear activities nor an unreported nuclear site.
Responding to a question about the recent report issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Eslami considered that “The fake documents are a political move in order to continue maximum pressure.”
The Iranian official pointed out that the recent move by Western states in submitting a draft resolution against Iran is a political measure supported by the Israeli occupation.
Eslami said that for the past 20 years, several sides have been putting forward allegations against Iran, adding that Tehran accepted the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in a bid to refute the allegations and build confidence.
The AEOI chairman stressed that Iran has spent months for negotiations, as the text of a resolution has been finalized and talks on sanctions have been carried out. However, "Israel" is now threatening Iran through terrorist, destructive operations, and baseless statements, as well as urging other sides to stop diplomacy.
The Iranian official affirmed that Iran showed maximum cooperation with the IAEA, noting that the Islamic Republic possesses only 2 to 3% of nuclear capacity in the world and that all Iranian nuclear activities are under the UN nuclear watchdog’s supervision.
Eslami stressed that Iran will not retreat in the face of such heavy psychological warfare, warning that his country is still showing good faith in complying with its commitments under the JCPOA.
