Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabiei slammed the UK, France and Germany in Tehran on Tuesday, following the European countries' decision to submit a resolution to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board of governors seeking to reprimand Iran for not allowing access to investigators at sites of suspected illegal nuclear activities.
Speaking to the press, Rabiei called out what he defined as «greedy, non-constructive and unprofessional» intentions of the IAEA voting members and the promoters of the resolution, that «will certainly not go unanswered. We are considering all possible options, and we will soon take appropriate legal action, and we will announce it.»
«The introduction of the resolution by the three European countries, we think, is again another proof of Europe's non-compliance with its JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) commitments, which we definitely consider is because of their surprising weakness in front of the US,» said Rabiei, adding that the world was watching Europe's behaviour in the face of oppression and dominance.
The IAEA's resolution calls on Iran to give inspectors access to two sites where undeclared nuclear activity purportedly took place in the early 2000s.
