Iran Warns of Proportionate Response If IAEA Makes Unconstructive Decision

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman has warned the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) against making any unconstructive decision based on Israeli claims.

“We urge the agency (IAEA) to be a little realistic about it, to pose its question (from Iran) on a legal basis, and not to get entangled in marginal issues,” the spokesman said in a press briefing on Monday.

Bemoaning the fact that the upcoming meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors on Iran is founded upon a report from the Zionist regime, Mousavi said, “We do not deem such an approach of the agency constructive. Our cooperation with the agency continued even when it (the IAEA) reduced commitments. If such a process goes on, the interaction with the organization (IAEA) will become difficult.”

The Iranian diplomat expressed hope that the UN nuclear agency would not make an “irrelevant and unconstructive” decision.

“Naturally, if they make an unconstructive decision, Iran will show a proportionate reaction, and they probably know what the decision would be,” he said.

“We hope the results of the (IAEA Board of Governors) meeting would be constructive for regional peace and stability,” he added, according to Tasnim.

The IAEA Board of Governors is meeting today to discuss reports that Iran has blocked inspection of two sites where “nuclear activity may have occurred”.

The Vienna-based IAEA expressed “serious concern” in a report earlier this month claiming that Iran has been blocking inspections at the sites.
