Iran rejects Western draft resolution to the contrary

The head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, Mohammad Eslami, announced his country’s rejection of a draft resolution presented by Western countries to the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency, condemning Tehran for failing to cooperate with the United Nations body, according to reports reported yesterday by media officers.

An Islamist said: the United States, France, Germany and Great Britain have drafted a resolution and brought documents that they realize are incorrect, and this is rejected, considering that “the adoption of the policy of maximum pressure and the promotion of accusations by the forces of arrogance (referring to the United States and its allies) and Zionists, it is the nature of those who are addicted to sanctions and drug addicts.

An Islamist stance came hours after Western diplomats revealed Washington, Berlin, Paris and London had presented a new draft resolution to the IAEA Board of Governors, which meets this week, condemning Iran for its lack of cooperation on the issue of undeclared sites.

The issue raises tensions between Iran and both the agency and Western countries led by the United States, France, Britain and Germany, which are parties to the 2015 deal on Tehran’s nuclear program, from which Washington withdrew in 2018.
