Salehi says Iran accepts no illegal demand beyond nuclear commitments

Salehi says Iran accepts no illegal demand beyond nuclear commitments

Tehran (ISNA) – The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Slahehi and the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Grossi held a meeting on Tuesday behind closed door.

After the meeting, the senior officials held a press conference and explained the results of these negotiations.

“A new chapter has opened between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency and with Grossi’s visit to Iran, our cooperation will further expand. I hope the outcome of this visit will please both sides, so much so that the two sides will fulfill their responsibilities, with the agency acting in accordance with the [IAEA’s] Statute and the Islamic Republic of Iran in line with the Safeguards Agreement and the Additional Protocol,” Salehi said.

“I had very constructive talks with Grossi and it was decided that the IAEA move forward with its work professionally and independently, and Iran, too, act within the framework of its obligations,” he added.

AEOI chief noted, “Enemies will not stay silent and we will foil their malicious measures. They created nuisance for Iranian transparent nuclear program, we accept no illegal demand beyond nuclear commitments and we act based on our interests”.

Grossi, for his part, said, “IAEA will not succumb to outside pressure over Iran. The agency is not swayed by any third party, but naturally there is some pressure which the agency will not bow to”.

He stressed that he will not allow certain elements to take advantage of the agency to achieve their own objectives.

“There has been no negative change in relations between the IAEA and Tehran, and the agency’s approach vis-à-vis Iran has not changed at all. However, there have always been technical questions over IAEA-Tehran relations for further transparency,” Grossi added.
