The Necessity of Professional and Non-Political Approach of the IAEA towards Iran’s Nuclear Program

2021/09/29 | interview, political, top news

Strategic Council Online—Interview: An expert of international issues says even though the International Atomic Energy Agency has emphasized that it is seeking constructive engagement with Iran, due to pressures by the White House and the Zionist regime, and allegations leveled against Iran, the behavior of the IAEA towards Iran is non-professional and non-technical and is becoming politically-motivated, which is a misguided and wrong attitude.

Abed Akbari told the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations that the Director General of the IAEA emphasized after the recent session of the Executive Board of the IAEA in Vienna in connection with his visit to Tehran and meetings he held with new Iranian officials that the agency is keen on continuing constructive engagement with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“Rafael Grossi said talks with President Raisi’s government is important for developing cooperation between Iran and the Agency and the settlement of the standing problems. He also requested that talks continue concerning keeping equipment required for the study and monitoring of Iran’s nuclear activities by the IAEA inspectors and the extension of memory cards for recording devices such as cameras and other issue of difference.”

Akbari pointed out that in recent days, there have been arguments about the possibility of adopting strict approaches to put pressure on the Islamic Republic of Iran to “return under pressure” to the negotiating table. He added that “despite the positive approach of the Iranian government to continue negotiations with the IAEA, it seems that in the new term of the IAEA management, for reasons such as pressure from the White House and the Zionist regime on this organization and submitting alleged documents against our country, the IAEA’s behavior towards Iran is not professional and technical and has taken a political side, which is a wrong and unconstructive approach.”

This international affairs expert said “it was with this approach that a few months before and before the meeting of the Board of Governors, for the first time since the signing of the JCPOA, the agency took a planned action and without any legal or technical justification, submitted a political and unwelcomed report on the Islamic Republic’s interaction with the agency. Following this report, the European Troika, in a scenario coordinated with the United States, presented a draft of an anti-Iranian resolution based on the alleged documents of the Zionist regime to the IAEA Board of Governors, in order to publish the first negative report on Iran’s activities under the JCPOA.”

He stressed that such behavior of the IAEA and its directors would definitely reduce Iran’s motivation to cooperate and would not be considered an interactive approach in any way.

According to this expert, the Islamic Republic of Iran has not forgotten that after the issue of UN Security Council Resolution 1737, despite its responsibility and duty, the IAEA refused to provide technical assistance to Iran in various projects, and thus, while using this assistance as a tool, the agency involved political and non-professional considerations in their presentation.

“This political approach to technical issues stemmed from the Security Council’s political decisions and calls into question its credibility, competence and impartiality,” Akbari stressed.

He pointed out that according to Article 3 of the IAEA Statute, “if this body encounters issues that fall within the competence of the Security Council, it will inform the Council as responsible for maintaining international peace and security.” He explained that none of the IAEA Director General’s reports described Iran’s nuclear activities as a threat to international peace and security. “Therefore, the referral of the case to the Security Council had no legal basis and was purely politically motivated.”

Akbari added that “according to the previous paragraph, the technical, professional and non-political view towards Iran’s nuclear program is not a choice, but a necessity. Achieving this will both attract more cooperation from Tehran and prove the independence and impartiality of the IAEA profession.”

“The necessity of this approach is doubled at a time when Iran, according to JCPOA and in response to the other side’s non-compliance, has reduced its obligations and despite the non-implementation of the Additional Protocol, adheres to the general requirements of the IAEA and the other side is trying to use the IAEA again as a tool to fabricate crisis.”

Goals of Blinken’s Recent Trip to Saudi Arabia

Strategic Council Online—Interview: A researcher of Saudi affairs said that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken arrived in Riyadh recently during a regional trip and had consultations with the Riyadh officials.

It Was America That Abandoned Nuclear Diplomacy/ Iran Also Considers Diplomacy the Best Approach

Strategic Council Online: The President of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations stated: “The US State Department spokesperson, after my interview with Al Jazeera, reiterated their past remarks, stating that they won’t allow Iran to build nuclear weapons, but ultimately said diplomacy is the best approach. Yes, we too prefer diplomacy since based on the Fatwa of our Supreme Leader are not for nuclear weapons; rather, we are advocates of diplomacy to make the Middle East a nuclear-free region. But, in case the Israeli regime threatens us with nuclear weapons, we surely cannot sit idle and wait for permission from others.”

Europe’s Confusion in Securing Bab al-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea

Strategic Council Online – Opinion: The strategic Strait of Bab al-Mandab and the Red Sea have recently faced serious problems and crises due to the Gaza war. This is because of the protectionist approach of the Yemeni army forces toward Palestine, which, since the beginning of the Israeli regime’s attacks on the Gaza Strip, has included attacks on ships bound for or from the origin of the regime in the Red Sea.
They said they will continue their attacks until the Israeli regime’s military aggression in the Gaza Strip ends. The United States, as the most important supporter of the Israeli regime, was the first country to respond to this policy of Yemeni army forces and tried to form a global coalition to counter these attacks under the cover of supporting freedom of navigation, which, of course, failed because of conflicts of interests of Western countries and ended in the actions of the US and British attacks on positions in Yemen. Of course, although European countries were not seriously involved in the American coalition, they have numerous and complex interests in this inflammatory, and as a result, have adopted a particular and independent approach.

The prospect of Possible Departure of Hamas Political Office from Qatar

Strategic Council Online – Interview: An expert on regional issues said Qatari authorities will definitely resist Western pressure to expel Hamas leaders from their territory, and probably the United States will not move towards a zero-hundred equation in this regard because if the Hamas leaders remain in Qatar, which is an ally of the United States, is better than moving to a country outside the power of the United States to exert pressure.
