Allow me to begin with appreciating you, Madam Chair, for your able leadership in conduct of this Session of the Board. I would also like to thank the Director General and his team for their efforts with regard to the verification of the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Agency’s professionalism, impartiality and independence are highly appreciated as real assets.
The Islamic Republic of Iran values so much the great support for maintaining the JCPOA expressed here across the aisles in this room. It must be seen as a promising sign which shows that the international community, minus a few warmongers, is strongly committed, at least politically, to respect multilateralism and the rule of law in the international affair.
