Statement by H.E. Dr. Ali Akbar Salehi, Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran

September 26, 2016


Mr. President,

My country has played its role with great efforts by implementing all its JCPOA commitments which was monitored and verified by the Agency as well as continuing its close cooperation with the IAEA through voluntary effectuation of the Additional Protocol in accordance with the provisions of the JCPOA. However, expectations regarding comprehensive and expeditious removal of all sanctions, as stipulated in the JCPOA, have yet to be met. Reciprocal and full implementation of the commitments by E3/EU+3 is the crucial foundation of the JCPOA and the fundamental part of the agreement for its durability. In the meantime, it is expected that the IAEA on its part would continue to pursue its oversighting mission impartially and with fairness and full objectivity.
