Iran’s envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency says the country will never halt its uranium enrichment program.
“Neither sanctions nor UN Security Council resolutions nor military threats can prevent Iran from continuing its uranium enrichment program,” IRNA quoted Ambassador Ali-Asghar Soltaniyeh as saying on Tuesday.
He noted that IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei’s recent report about Iran’s Fordo enrichment facility indicates that Iran has fully cooperated with the IAEA.
ElBaradei stated that the results of the IAEA inspections at the nuclear facility comply with the information Iran had earlier presented to the nuclear watchdog.
“The latest report by the IAEA director general is a clear message to the international community that during the course of over six years of close inspections, no evidence has been found to indicate that Iran has deviated from the peaceful path of its nuclear program,” Soltaniyeh said.
