Iran nuclear case fabricated scenario: Iran nuclear chief
Iran’s nuclear chief says the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)’s recent decision to drop the so-called possible military dimensions (PMD) in relation with the country’s nuclear case proved that the entire case was fabricated.
The whole nuclear case of Iran was “manufactured” in order to ratchet up the pressure on Iran, said head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Ali-Akbar Salehi, who made the remarks during a televised interview on Tuesday night following the closure of the PMD case.
During its meeting in the Austrian capital of Vienna on Tuesday, the IAEA’s Board of Governors overwhelmingly voted in favor of a draft resolution which brings down the curtain on a 12-year investigation into the past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
The draft resolution on Iran’s past nuclear activities had been submitted by the P5+1 group of countries on December 7.
Before the recent resolution, Salehi said, the Board of Governors was tasked with monitoring the implementation of the Safeguards Agreement in Iran based on the UN Security Council resolutions, but now its task is to oversee and verify Iran’s nuclear activities under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached between Tehran and the P5+1 group in mid-July.
