Tehran (ISNA) - The Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami stressed on the need for IAEA's impartial and independent monitoring and verification, and putting an end to the false allegations against Iran's peaceful nuclear programs and activities.

Speaking at the 66th International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) General Conference on Monday, Eslami said, "Iran's development programs are in line with the progress and expansion of justice aiming at achieving sustainable development. The comprehensive strategic document for the development of the nuclear industry for a 20-year horizon has been approved at the national level and has been put on the agenda of the AEOI".

"Contrary to the will of international community, the US violated the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and UN Security Council Resolution 2231, withdrew from this agreement, and resorted to the notorious policy of maximum pressure," he added.

"After two and a half years, the US imposed increasing sanctions against various sectors of Iran's economy and three European countries as well as the European Union did nothing against the US moves," IAEA chief went on to say.

"Therefore, the Iranian Parliament approved the Strategic Action Plan to Lift Sanctions and Protect Iranian Nation's Interests which requires the AEOI to implement specific measures".

Stressing that Iran is still committed to the 2015 nuclear deal, Eslami noted that Iran's compensatory measures have been taken in response to the violation of the obligations of the other parties.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported the full and non-discriminatory implementation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and Safeguards agreements. Iran has an exemplary record of cooperation with the IAEA in this field," he stated.

"I would like to clarify that there is no undeclared nuclear material or activity in Iran. Such accusations are solely resulting from false information raised by the usurping Israeli regime" Eslami said.

"Iran really expects the IAEA to fulfill its duties of reporting, monitoring, and verification in a more professional, impartial, and independent manner," he added.
