The 65th annual meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency opened on the 20th of this month in the Austrian capital of Vienna. The agency’s Director General Grossi expressed the hope that urgent issues related to Iran’s nuclear program can be resolved.
Grossi added in his speech that the International Atomic Energy Agency is trying to pave the way for more diplomatic efforts to achieve a “satisfactory” situation on the Iranian nuclear issue.
In addition, he also emphasized the need to work hard to provide safeguards to the world to prove that there is no need to worry about Iran’s nuclear program.
The conference is expected to discuss the probability of resuming the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement after the institution has achieved a breakthrough in the relationship between Sri Lanka and Iran.
Al Jazeera reporters reported that the International Atomic Energy Agency’s strategy is to avoid everything that might harm Grossi’s trip to Tehran and not to disrupt his meeting with Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency Chairman Mohamed Eslamy on the evening of the 20th. Do not disrupt the atmosphere of talks between the new Iranian Foreign Minister Amir Abdullahian and the European countries that have signed nuclear agreements in the next few hours.
On the occasion of the annual meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency, people from all walks of life expect that the Vienna negotiations, which were suspended in June this year, will be resumed. The purpose of these negotiations is to resume the nuclear agreement reached by Iran in 2015 with world powers.
In this five-day meeting, the participating parties will discuss the main achievements of the IAEA’s work and its plans for the next year on the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
Call for neutrality
Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency Chairman Mohamed Eslamy called on the International Atomic Energy Agency to maintain its independence and impartiality and avoid politicizing its tasks.
Eslamy said that the United States should abandon its sanctions on Iran, correct its policy on Iran and effectively lift the sanctions it imposed on Iran.
The Iranian official also stated that the United States violated the nuclear agreement and adopted a “unilateral policy” to obstruct the agreement. He also emphasized that the US policy of extreme pressure has already failed.
The International Atomic Energy Agency promised a few days ago that it would closely monitor Iran’s nuclear activities. Prior to this, the two parties agreed that the International Atomic Energy Agency would extend its monitoring activities in Iran on the basis of abiding by some conditions.
North Korea’s nuclear program
On the other hand, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Grossi said that North Korea’s nuclear program is advancing with “full force”.
At the opening of the meeting, Grossi added, “In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, nuclear programs including plutonium separation, uranium enrichment and other activities are being fully advanced.”
In a report published last month, Grossi pointed out that North Korea appears to have resumed work on a nuclear reactor, which is reportedly mainly used to make plutonium for nuclear weapons.
