Kayhan Editor-in-Chief: We Must Withdraw from NPT
Discussing the International Atomic Energy Agency Board of Governor’s meeting in Vienna, Hossein Shariatmadari, a confidant of the regime’s Supreme Leader and the editor in chief of the Kayhan newspaper, stated in an interview with the IRGC-run Fars news agency: “The IAEA resolution does not have a legal and natural procedure. The bottom line is that the expectations and demands of the other side are based on the information provided by the Zionist regime, and the Western side does not even deny this.”
“All the evidence suggests that the nuclear challenge is just an excuse, and the only way forward for us to get that excuse out of the hands of the enemy is to use Article 10 of the NPT and withdraw from the treaty,” Shariatmadari concluded his remarks for Fars.
