Communication Dated September 12 2013 Received from the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Agency Regarding the Report of the Director General on the Implementation of Safeguards in Iran

September 12, 2013

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear
  • Missile

Mentioned Suspect Entities & Suppliers: 


4. The Islamic Republic of Iran has already made it clear, based on the legal provisions such as those of the Agency's Statute and the Safeguards Agreement as to why the UNSC resolutions against Iran are illegal and unjustified, which have been already explained in INFCIRCs/: 786, 804, 805, 810, 817, 823, 827, 833, 837, 847, 849, 850 and 853. Iran's peaceful nuclear activities have unlawfully been put on the agenda of the UNSC and the Council has taken a wrong approach by adopting its politically-motivated, illegal and unacceptable resolutions against Iran. Therefore, any request by the Agency stemming from those resolutions is not legitimate and not acceptable.

5. Although the report once again reconfirmed that "the Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material at the nuclear facilities and LOFs declared by Iran under its Safeguards Agreement," it keeps using "unusual" and "irrelevant" language with regard to the Safeguards conclusions, by stating: "the Agency is unable to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran," since the Agency has to simply confirm that all declared nuclear material is accounted for and therefore "declared nuclear material in Iran remained in peaceful activities."


8. Regrettably, the main portion of DG report is based on certain information related to missile issue, not involving nuclear material activities. The Agency is not entitled to step beyond its mandate to the bilateral Safeguards Agreement, or interfere with Iran's national security concerns on the pretext of Iran's nuclear program. Moreover, DG has relied on some forged, fabricated and false information provided by Western intelligence services and known sources hostile to Iran, assessed as "overall credible" information, without any authenticity verification, while independent observers have revealed part of the false information used by the Agency and criticized ironically its immature assessment on allegations against Iran.
