Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Abbas Mousavi warned that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) would encounter an «appropriate reaction», should the UN watchdog board of governors make an «unconstructive decision» in its upcoming meeting. He was addressing the press in Tehran on Monday.
«We hope that the IAEA and other countries on the [IAEA’s] Board of Governors will not make the so-called, irrelevant and unprofessional decision under pressure from the Americans and the Zionist regime. Naturally, if they make an unconstructive decision, Iran will show an appropriate reaction to their decision, and they probably know what the decision would be,» said Mousavi.
The IAEA’s governing body held a virtual meeting on Monday morning where the main focus was Iran, following concerns over claims that the country refused to allow inspections of two sites where nuclear activities have purportedly taken place as far back as two decades ago.
Following the meeting, Director-General of IAEA Mariano Grossi raised serious concern over Iran's alleged conduct, demanding immediate access to the two sites.
