The International nuclear energy Agency (IAEA) ought to stay fair-minded towards Iran’s atomic program, Kazem Gharibabadi, Iranian delegate to the global associations in Vienna, was cited as saying by Iran’s state TV report.

The comments of Gharibabadi followed Tuesday’s report of chief Rafael Grossi, during which he affirmed that Iran blocks access to a number of its nuclear sites and continues to spice up its stocks of uranium enriched above the share allowed within the 2015 nuclear deal, officially referred to as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

All of Iran’s nuclear activities are fully compliant with the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and therefore the country’s commitments under the JCPOA also because of the safeguards agreement, Gharibabadi was quoted as saying.

“The IAEA should keep up with its freedom, impartiality, and professionalism, and accordingly the IAEA individuals should truly forgo squeezing the office for their political purposes,” he said.
