Speaking on the sidelines of the international conference on the World Against Violence and Extremism (WAVE) on Tuesday, Behrouz Kamalvandi, Spokesman of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) responded to the US false allegations on Iranian agents having sought illegaly to obtain parts for the Arak heavy water complex.
"I do not know of the purchase of any new parts, but even if any parts were purchased, that would not be inconsistent with the Geneva agreement,” said Kamalvandi.
"What has been agreed upon in Geneva on Iran’s nuclear facilities was that we would not install any new parts, and we haven’t either,” he said.
He noted that the nuclear talks are in process on various levels and would resume next week.
Kamalvandi pointed to Iran’s cooperation with the IAEA inspectors, saying "our cooperation with the Agency depends on the finalization of the earlier issues, inter alia, their claim on the explosive experiments in Marivan. Iran’s envoy to the IAEA, Reza Najafi, has reacted to the allegations and called them wrong and baseless. If the IAEA provides more accurate information, Iran will give them access to the site.”
"The other issue which needs to be resolved is that we had demanded the agency provide us with more explanation on some of its documents which are not substantial enough,” he further stated, "for instance, they have brought up a series of names which are not even Persian. These appear to be fake, and they sound like Zionist names.”
