Larijani mocks US says Iran can reduce IAEA inspection if US thinks it ‘not good enough’
Iran’s Parl. Speaker Ali Larijani said Tue. that if US thinks the level of IAEA inspections of Iran’s nuclear program is not ‘good enough for them’, the Islamic Republic can always reduce the level of inspections.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said the recent US move to slap more sanctions on Iran is nothing new, stressing that the sanctions placed on Iran and Russia are being closely monitored and the country will respond accordingly.
“This only goes to prove the US lack of commitment in the past and present. They may think that adopting a hostile policy toward the nuclear deal will benefit them, but this will only prove to be a wrong move for them,” Larijani said.
He went on to add, “we have good nuclear potentials and can quickly return the conditions back [to pre-nuclear deal]. If the Americans think the level of IAEA inspections is not good enough for them, then we can always reduce it to an even lower level.”
“We have the capability to take many appropriate measures in response to the US moves,” he stressed.
“We have Washington’s moves under close surveillance and will take actions appropriate to what they do,” he added.
