Lawmakers: IAEA resolution proves ‘structural discrimination’

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Iranian lawmakers on Sunday denounced a resolution the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors passed Friday, saying the document is another indication of “structural discrimination” within the UN atomic watchdog. In a statement, 240 MPs argued that the IAEA resolution – introduced by France, Germany, and Britain – the three European signatories to a 2015 nuclear deal (JCPOA) with Iran – explicitly demonstrated the trio’s “excessive demands.” The Islamic Republic has voluntarily implemented the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and allowed the IAEA to conduct the most rigorous inspections of its nuclear sites in the history of the Vienna-based agency, read the statement, Press TV reported.
