In response to a question about the latest process of cooperation between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) - regarding some recent claims- Eslami told IRNA that any cooperation between Iran and the IAEA should be based on the framework of laws, safeguards agreements and the NPT.

Within the framework of these rules, we maintain our ties with the IAEA, and the IAEA monitors Iran's nuclear activities in accordance with the rules and regulations, he added.

He further noted that what is claimed in the media and news is related to psychological warfare and political issues.

we are fighting psychological warfare that does not support the scientific and technological development of the Islamic Republic of Iran in any way, and with these accusations, machination, and psychological warfare, it induces that the Islamic Republic has an unjustified goal and is not committed to non-proliferation.
