Iran committed to Safeguards Agreement no more no less, says envoy


Kazem Gharibabadi, Iranís permanent representative to Vienna-based international organizations

Iranís permanent representative to Vienna-based international organizations has reminded the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that the country is only committed to honor its obligations under the Comprehensive Safeguards Agreements (CSA).

Kazem Gharibabadi made the remarks on Friday after the UN nuclear agency demanded "an immediate response" from Iran on whether it would extend a monitoring deal that expired overnight.

The IAEAís statement summarized a report by its chief Rafael Grossi to the Agencyís Board of Governors.

Back in February, Iran stopped the voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Safeguards Treaty, which stipulates enhanced access to nuclear sites and snap inspections by the IAEA.

The halt came under the Strategic Action Plan to Counter Sanctions, a law passed in December 2020 by the Iranian Parliament, and adds to Iranís previous steps away from the 2015 nuclear deal in response to the USís unilateral withdrawal in 2018 and the other partiesí failure to fulfill their commitments.

At that time, the IAEA and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) reached a temporary bilateral technical understanding, under which the latter would continue to use cameras to record information at its nuclear sites for three months, but it would retain the information exclusively. If the US sanctions were lifted completely within that period in a verifiable manner, Tehran would provide the footage information to the UN nuclear watchdog, otherwise it would be deleted forever.

The understanding expired in May amid diplomatic efforts in Vienna, Austria, to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran and the IAEA agreed to extend the understanding for a further month until June 24 allowing the agency to continue necessary verification and monitoring work in the country.

Gharibabadi said, "Data recording was a political decision by Iran to facilitate, including, the political talks and to help its success and shouldnít be considered as obligation in relation with the Agency."

"Since Iran is continuing the implementation of its CSA, continuation or discontinuation of recording has nothing to do with Iranís safeguards obligations. Undoubtedly, any decision to be taken by Iran in this regard, would only be based on its political considerations, and the Agency cannot, and should not, consider it as something it was entitled to," he added.

The Iranian envoy also criticized Grossi for reporting to members of the IAEAís Board of Governors, saying that the Agency has no obligation to report on the expired joint understanding as well as data recording.

"What Iran is committed to fulfill are obligations under Safeguards Agreement, no more or less," he stressed.
