Kazem Gharib Abadi, Iran’s ambassador to the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, said on Friday that Iran will take appropriate action in response to a move taken by the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors in adopting an anti-Iran-resolution.
Russia and China, who voted against the resolution, also issued separate statements reprimanding the move. Russia called it “counterproductive” and China said it has “huge implications on the prospect of the JCPOA”.
The 35-member IAEA board passed the resolution on Friday, demanding access to two old places they claim nuclear work may have been done.
France, Britain, and Germany, the three European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal, submitted the draft anti-Iran-resolution to the IAEA board on Thursday. The board failed to approve the anti-Iran-resolution on Thursday due to opposition by Iran and China. However, the resolution was ratified on Friday despite Russia and China’s opposition.
Ambassador Gharibabadi said, “Iran categorically deplores this resolution and will take appropriate action in response, the repercussions of which would be upon the sponsors of this resolution.”
Following is text of the statement by Gharibabadi:
I would like to put on record the position of the Islamic Republic of Iran on the resolution just adopted.
