The Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Mohammad Eslami, announced Saturday that he will visit Austria’s capital, Vienna, to attend the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) General Conference on Sunday.
Eslami considered that “all countries have the right to operate in the nuclear industry and technology, and it is an explicit task of the IAEA’s statute to facilitate access to peaceful nuclear technology for all countries.”
“We are committed to comprehensive safeguards and NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty),” he affirmed, adding that he will express Iran’s positions during his speech at the summit.
The AEOI head pointed out that “one of the things that I will mention is about the unjustified and repeated accusations against Iran for twenty years. They make claims about places that are fictitious and have nothing to do with the government at all and are essentially not (nuclear) facilities and are facilities belonging to the people.”
He underlined that “baseless information on some places in Iran has been fabricated by spy agencies and anti-Revolution elements in a bid to disrupt the progress of the Islamic Republic.”
Eslami also confirmed that he will hold a meeting with IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi, as well as other meetings with a number of his counterparts, on the sideline of the 66th Session of the IAEA General Conference from September 26 to 30.
“I hope that these talks will be facilitative so that these kinds of perceptions, which are caused by political pressure and psychological operations against Iran, will end as soon as possible, and the process of affairs will be adjusted based on relations and regulations, and we will pass this stage,” he indicated.
A few days ago, the head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, Mohammad Eslami, considered that the Israeli occupation is the source of the accusations launched by the IAEA against Iran.
