London, IRNA -- In response to the unlawful remarks of the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency accusing Tehran of failure to respond to the extension of the technical agreement between the two sides, the Iranian ambassador in Vienna Kazem Gharib Abadi stated that the agreement is not an obligation.
Gharib Abadi told reporters on Friday that despite the three-month joint technical agreement between the IAEA and Iran, it should be noted that the basis of this agreement is to facilitate political negotiations, not Iran's obligation to implement the Agency's request.
He added that according to Iran's political decision, the role of the agency is only that of an executor.
Gharib Abadi said: Although, the director general of the agency stressed the vital importance of continuing verification, monitoring activities in Iran and data registration, but data registration has nothing to do with this issue.
