Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami said on Monday that it is time for the US to reform its wrong policies and lift all sanctions in a practical, effective and verifiable manner.
Eslami made the remarks at the 65th Annual Regular Session of the IAEA General Conference in Vienna on Monday.
Iran’s Nuclear Chief criticized the US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), saying that the US exit breached UN Resolution 2231.
He noted that the US sanctions within the framework of the Maximum Pressure Campaign have failed, adding that the US has no choice but to abandon its addiction to imposing unilateral sanctions and respect international rules.
“We look forward to a day when the motto of peaceful use of nuclear energy for all and nuclear weapon for none, is universally recognized and materialized. This message, if realized, would accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to peace, health, and prosperity throughout the world.” He said.
Eslami continued “I would also like to stress that Iran is the cradle of civilization and a peace-loving country that historically has contributed to global science and technology.”
In the same context, he added “We are determined to pursue our nuclear program and activities which are exclusively for peaceful purposes and as stated by our President during SHANGHAI Summit on 17th September 2021.”
Eslami concluded “Nothing could halt the Iranian peaceful nuclear activities which will be conducted in the framework of international rules and regulations.”
