Tehran, YJC. Boroujerdi says following IAEA’s positive report, Iran is not going to stop its nuclear activities.

Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis Alaeddin Boroujerdi in interview with ICANA said "The agency’s report follows the constructive atmosphere that came to exist after the Iran-Six Majors Geneva talks.”

Maintaining that the IAEA Director General’s visit to Tehran did not go without some impact on the report, he said "At the end of Amano’s meeting with Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization, a statement was issued which had been unprecedented in the previous 10 years.”

"With its last report, the IAEA proved to have developed a more realistic outlook toward Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities,” the Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis said.

The lawmaker added "Iran’s policy is based upon cooperation with the agency. As much as the agency acts realistically and based on its rules as an international entity, avoiding political pressure from the US from influencing its reports, cooperation can be extended in the future.”

He maintained that as the Iran-Six Majors talks rely heavily on IAEA reports, the recent seasonal report can help create a more open atmosphere for the Geneva III talks.

Pointing to the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statements about the recent IAEA report on Iran’s nuclear activities, Boroujerdi said "There is no value to what the Prime Minister of the Jerusalem-occupying regime says. Iran will not halt its activities as relate to peaceful nuclear objectives.”

The IAEA had in its quarterly report stated that after Hassan Rouhani was elected president, Iran had halted expanding its nuclear activities.
