The Iran Project : The Foreign Ministry has strongly condemned the United Nations nuclear agency’s earlier passage of an anti-Iranian resolution, insisting that such moves would not serve to undermine the country’s nuclear development plans.

According to The Iran Project, the ministry issued the remarks in a statement on Wednesday after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)’s Board of Governors passed the resolution, accusing the Islamic Republic of withholding sufficient cooperation with the agency.

“Passage of the resolution will have no effect on the Islamic Republic’s resolve to continue its peaceful application of the nuclear energy and operationalize its developmental nuclear plans in line with the rights that are accorded to the country under the relevant international agreements,” the ministry’s statement read.

It considered the resolution to be a “politically-motivated and non-constructive measure” and an attempt on the part of some Western countries to take political advantage of international mechanisms to target independent countries.

Iran asserts that it runs one of the most transparent peaceful nuclear energy programs among the IAEA’s members.

The country has also repeatedly voiced its readiness to resolve differences with the IAEA within a framework of constructive and mutual interaction and technical cooperation.

The ministry’s statement likewise declared that “Iran is committed to continue technical cooperation with the agency within the framework of its international rights and obligations based on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and [the agency’s] Safeguards Agreement.”
