IAEA sole judge in JCPOA issue: Iran

Tehran, Dec 25, IRNA – Top Iranian Foreign Ministry official said on Monday that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is the only eligible entity to judge Iran's compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

'JCPOA issue has one judge… and according to the international norms..., it is the IAEA,' Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Monday in reaction to the US lawmakers' accusation on violation of nuclear deal by Iran.

Speaking about US President Donald Trump's policy towards Iran, he said that the terrorists' defeat in the region is the reason for Trump's nervousness.

These claims are unimportant and 'cannot influence Islamic Republic of Iran's logical policies in the region and the world', Qasemi noted.

Speaking about Zionist regime officials' remarks after the UN General Assembly resolution on recognition of Jerusalem (Holy Quds) as capital of Israel, he said that this occupying regime is root cause of all problems in the region.

The UK debt to Iran was one of the major issues discussed during UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson's visit to Iran, the official noted.

He expressed the hope that the UK would show good will and resolve the problem.

Answering another question regarding Iran, Turkey and Russia cooperation in Syria, Qasemi expressed the hope for taking new steps towards resolution of the issue till end of January.

Commenting on the status of Negar Ghodskani, an Iranian citizen imprisoned in Australia, he expressed concern about her status and urged the Australian government to release her for humanitarian considerations.
