TEHRAN, Dec. 3, 2014 (TSR-Agencies) – Iran vehemently denounces the claims made in the “forged” International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) about the possible military dimensions (PMD) of Tehran’s nuclear energy program and says it is full of mistakes.
The IAEA has never provided “any authenticated documents for PMD claims,” said in a statement issued on Tuesday by Iran’s permanent mission to the IAEA, Press TV reported.
This is during when Tehran has offered “pieces of evidence” during meetings with IAEA officials in October and November, proving that the agency’s accusations are fabricated, added the statement.
The IAEA’s documents “are full of mistakes and contain fake names with specific pronunciations, which only point toward a certain member of the IAEA as their forger,” read the statement.
The statement came in reaction to the IAEA’s last month report that called on Tehran to step up cooperation with the agency’s investigation in order to address moot points regarding Iran’s nuclear energy program.
Recognition of Iran’s Rights, Not Pressure or War, is the Way to Final Agreement
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday said that the recognition of the Iranian nation’s rights is the way to reach a final agreement with the P5+1 countries.
“All have come to the conclusion that logic and interaction are the ways to deal with the Iranian nation,” Zarif said in an address to a conference on nuclear diplomacy at a university in Tehran on Tuesday.
Zarif said the world, including the US, has come to the conclusion that the Iranian nation cannot be dealt with through pressure and war, as Iran is a nation of dialog, logic and reaching settlements.
The top Iranian nuclear negotiator said that during the last round of the talks with the P5+1 countries in the Austrian capital, Vienna, the Iranian team showed well that it is a serious negotiating partner by, inter alia, insisting for a timeframe for the negotiations and demanding that the talks not be open-ended.
He emphasized that the structure of Iran’s nuclear program will be preserved under any deal.
“Our programs in Arak [heavy water reactor] and other issues will continue to be pursued with seriousness and in cooperation with the international community and through access to state-of-the-art technologies,” the Iranian minister said.
Zarif said Iran demands nothing beyond its rights because, in accordance with a fatwa (religious decree) by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei as well as strategic calculations, the country’s nuclear program is and will be entirely peaceful.
Zarif said Iran does not worry about reaching an agreement with the P5+1. “An agreement is useful for us; it does us no harm. We are not after [nuclear] weapons,” he said.
Iran to Talk with G5+1 in December
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said Iran is to hold talks with G5+1 during this month, IRNA reports.
Talking to reporters during her weekly press briefing on Wednesday, she said the exact date and place of the meeting have not been fixed yet.
She stressed that there have been no changes in the content of the Geneva agreement.
She reiterated that Iran’s nuclear activities are based on its research needs and are endorsed by Iran Atomic Energy Organization.
The spokeswoman stressed that from among the countries participating in the nuclear talks, Iran is the one which has provided the public with the largest amount of information.
Pointing to the remarks of the Supreme Leader in the aftermath of the latest round of Vienna talks, she noted that they clearly indicated there were nothing to worry about.
Afkham was also asked to comment on any probable link between the results of the latest round of nuclear talks with escalating prices of forex and foodstuff.
She said she saw the minimum amount of relation between the two developments, given the fact that the rates have been dropping in the past two days.
In their last round of talks, Iran and the P5+1 countries – Russia, China, Britain, the US, France plus Germany – wrapped up a week of intense closed-door nuclear negotiations in Vienna on November 24. The talks aimed to tackle the remaining obstacles that exist in the way of reaching a final agreement.
At the end of the talks, the two sides decided to extend their discussions for seven more months. They also agreed that the interim deal they had signed in the Swiss city of Geneva last November remain in place during the remainder of the negotiations until July 1, 2015.
