IAEA Unable to Avoid Disputes on Iran’s Nuclear Program: Experts

Azerbaijan, Baku, 24 April /corr. Trend D.Khatinoglu, A.Gasimova / The absence of satisfactory results on discussions which have been taking place between Iran and IAEA since 2002 demonstrates that this international organization were unable to settle the scandal regarding Iran's nuclear program. "The IAEA is completely impotent. It will do nothing with Iranian nuclear program at all," Czech expert Roman Yoch reported to Trend .

The IAEA Deputy Director General, Olli Heinonen, did not comment on the results of discussions which took place between them on 21-22 April in Tehran. Pro-governmental Iranian agency Fars News reported, with reference to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, that the discussions involved claims being made, and Tehran denied these 'claims'. In addition, last week Iran cancelled the meeting between the Chairman of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Gholamreza Aqazadeh and IAEA Head in Vienna.

"The IAEA is completely impotent. It will do nothing with Iranian nuclear program at all," Director of the Prague Civic Institute said. According to him, IAEA has neither the will, nor the means to do anything. "So, if Iran wishes to proceed with a military nuclear program, the IAEA will not stop it. The only relevant question is: will somebody other stop it? The Russian Federation is convinced, that either the U.S. or Israel would, and relies on that conviction. I am not so sure," the Czech expert said.

Iranian politician in Paris, Hossein Lacevardi, is certain that Iran is willing to produce nuclear weapons. "Two months ago, several countries passed their secret information regarding Iran's nuclear program to IAEA. There are documents on Tehran's plans to produce nuclear warheads," Lacevardi reported to Trend . According to him, Iran's goal to hold discussions with the IAEA is to play for time. "The discussions between IAEA and Tehran have not yielded any results as yet," Chairman of Association of Iranian Researchers, Hossein Lacevardi, said.

" Iran decisively implements its military nuclear program and ignores the international community," Russian expert Yevgeni Volk said. According to him, for a long time, the IAEA has been trying to convince Tehran to abandon its military nuclear ambitions and make its plans more transparent and available for inspection. "Unfortunately, this has not taken place. Iran has demonstrated its unwillingness to co-operate with the IAEA. Further talks will bring the issue that Iran will commence implementing its nuclear program. It is a wrong policy," the Head of the Russian office of the Heritage Foundation, Yevgeni Volk, reported to Trend .

He considers that the UN and other international organizations should be firm in their efforts and apply efficient sanctions against Iran in order to prevent new global nuclear threats.

"It is important that besides IAEA, Iran holds discussions with the western countries. The problem can not be settled only through discussions with the IAEA," said the Professor of U.S. National Defense University, Paul J. Sullivan. According to him, the relations between Iran and the IAEA have been strained for some time, especially since the time the MEK (Mujihadeen El Khalk) sent out information about some of Iran's hidden nuclear facilities to the IAEA and others.

He considers that it makes no economic or strategic sense for Iran to develop the entire nuclear fuels cycle.

Iran's argument is that its nuclear program will bring it energy security in the future and allow it to export more of its oil and gas. However, according to the expert, Iran has very limited uranium resources, and therefore, the project will not be economically beneficial for the Country.

Up to now, the UN Security Council has applied three sanctions against Iran's plans on uranium enrichment. The West accuses Iran of producing nuclear weapons. Tehran, however, states that its nuclear program is peaceful and has refuted accusations against its Country.
