Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani slammed the Zionist regime’s advanced atomic military program as a serious threat to international security and the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).
“The advanced atomic military program of the apartheid Israeli regime and the regime’s continued objection to placing its nuclear facilities under the Safeguards Agreements (of the International Atomic Energy) Agency and not joining the Non-Proliferation Treaty are serious threats to international security and the non-proliferation regime,” Nasser Kanaani said in a post on his Twitter account on Friday.
The IAEA is expected to fulfill its responsibility in this regard in accordance with its statute, he added.
“According to the agency’s statute, it is expected that promoting the peaceful use and non-deviation of the peaceful goals of nuclear energy will be the concern of the agency and its director general with no discrimination,” the spokesman added, Press TV reported.
In another tweet, the Iranian spokesman wished success for Mohsen Naziri Asl, Iran’s new ambassador and permanent representative to the UN office in Vienna and the Islamic Republic’s representative to the IAEA and said the diplomat was appointed on July 29, the day the UN nuclear watchdog was officially launched in 1957.
