Iranian Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Ali Asghar Soltanieh, said that “the threats by “Israel” pertaining to attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities are violation of IAEA’s resolutions.”
During his speech at a meeting of IAEA’s board of governors, Soltanieh called on IAEA to break its silence with regard to the “Israeli” violations of IAEA’s charter.
Recalling the Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei declaration that the “the Iranian nation has never been after nuclear weapon and that it they will never go after it in the future,” the Iranian ambassador pointed out that “Tehran considers possessing nuclear weapons a sin in logical and religious terms.”
“The valuable support of more than 100 member-states of the Non-Aligned Movement for about one decade from Iran’s nuclear issue has a clear message which is the developing countries have the right to make use from nuclear energy for peaceful means and that the apartheid era and colonialism have come to an end,” he added.
Soltanieh further stated that his country believes “in settling down the differences through constructive cooperation and holding fair negotiations.”
“It has always respected the rights of other countries,” he stressed.
Noting that the “assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists in the 21st century were evident violation of charter of the United Nations,” the Iranian diplomat commented by saying: “Sadly, the world witnessed that five Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated by terrorists in the daylight.”
