Iran reminds IAEA duty to keep confidential information

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Vienna, June 8, IRNA -- Iran's ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency Reza Najafi on Wednesday reminded the UN nuclear agency to keep the confidential information Iran provides as per the regular report.

Najafi made the remarks speaking to reporters on the sidelines of meeting of IAEA Board of Governors held to verify Iran's commitment to all its pledges under the UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

Iran calls on the IAEA to safeguard Iran's confidential data Iran would provide as part of the Additional Protocol with a preliminary report due to cover six-month time performance.

In today meeting, a number of delegations expressed support for the implementation of Iran nuclear deal – the JCPOA – and urged the negotiating parties to honor commitments to their promises, Najafi said.

They called on the agency to continue with its verification duties, he added.

The ambassador noted that Iran, for its part, underlined for the other side to honor its commitments under the JCPOA and refrain from taking any measures that would hamper the successful implementation of the deal.

He denounced the allegations made by the Israeli envoy against Iran, saying that a regime that has joined no international treaties on prohibition of weapons of mass-destruction cannot make any comment on nuclear programs of the member states.
