The European Union is telling the Iranian regime to cooperate with a stalled U.N. probe of suspicions that it worked on atomic arms if it wants a nuclear deal that will see removal of sanctions.
The Associated Press has obtained a copy of EU statement ahead of its delivery Monday at a meeting of the U.N’s International Atomic Energy Agency.
The EU statement comes ahead of a June 30 deadline for an agreement
The EU statement says getting to the bottom of the probe “will be essential” to a nuclear deal.
In its last report of 29 May 2015, IAEA declared Iranian regime’s lack of cooperation with the investigations into the possible military dimension (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear activities that have reached an stalemate.
The Iranian regime also would have to accept limits on its present nuclear activities.
The IAEA is focused on 12 activities that point to clerical regime’s attempts to make nuclear weapons, including activities related to work on the development on a nuclear payload for missiles. The UN watch dog listed the unresolved issues regarding “possible military dimensions: of the Iranian nuclear program in its November 2011 report.
Placing inspection and verification mechanisms to prevent the Iranian regime from obtaining nuclear weapons remains to be a key unresolved issue between Iran and P5+1.
Recently, on May 20, Khamenei had declared that inspection of military sites would not be allowed, nor would interviews with regime’s nuclear scientists. Similarly, on April 18, Deputy Commander of the IRGC, and later another commander on May 30 stated: Inspection of military sites will be met with bullets and if IAEA inspectors enter military sites, they would be arrested on charge of espionage.
