Iran MP: Amano's remarks question his competence
The IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano has questioned his qualification following his recent remarks against Iran, said an Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi on Tuesday, ISNA reported.
Boroujerdi called for the country to show protest against the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General's claims against Iran's enrichment activities.
The Head of Iranian Parliament National Security and Foreign policy Commission continued, "Amano has strongly inserted a political approach both in his job and the IAEA activities which go out of the IAEA rules and has undermined the position of the important international body."
He also said, "the IAEA has been turned into an institution with political intentions which takes position based on unreal issues. It shows that it is putting into practice the US officials' views on Iran's nuclear issue."
The Iranian lawmaker added, "Amano's political positions on Iran's nuclear work lack legal values."
Amano claimed on Monday that new data hints at the Iranian undisclosed nuclear activities.
In an introductory statement to the UN nuclear watchdog's Board of Governors (BoG) on Monday, Yukiya Amano claimed that since his previous report on Implementation of the NPT Safeguards Agreement and Relevant Provisions of Security Council Resolutions in the Iranian government, "the Agency has received further information related to possible past or current undisclosed nuclear related activities that seem to point to the existence of possible military dimensions to Iran's nuclear program. There are indications that certain of these activities may have continued until recently."
He referred to a letter he sent last month to Fereidoun Abbasi, the Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), which voiced the Agency's alleged concerns about the existence of possible military dimensions.
