NAM’s statement supporting Iran’s peaceful nuclear program was delivered at the IAEA Board of Governors Meeting in March by Iran's Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Reza Najafi.
According to the statement, NAM welcomes and endorses Iran’s measures in the IAEA Framework for Cooperation as well as the continued cooperation between Iran and the IAEA as was stated in the last report issued by the Director General Yukiya Amano.
The movement has also considered diplomacy and negotiations as the only appraoch that could lead to a comprehensive and permanent solution to Iran’s nuclear case, calling on all IAEA member countries to make positive contribution in this context, according to Mehr news agency.
NAM has also underscored the primary and undeniable right of all nations to develop, research, produce and use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, and declares its opposition to any interpretation that would lead to banning or restriction of countries’ rights in developing nuclear energy.
While asserting Iran’s decisions in the peaceful use of nuclear technology must be respected, NAM stressed there must be no pressure or inappropriate interference in the IAEA’s activities that would threaten the performance and reputation of the Agency.
