The International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors called on the Iranian regime on Friday to stop denying the agency access to two suspected former sites and to cooperate fully with it, diplomats attending the meeting told the Reuters.
According to Reuters this resolution calls on the Iranian regime “to fully cooperate with the Agency and satisfy the Agency’s requests without any further delay, including by providing prompt access to the locations specified by the Agency.”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), while welcoming the IAEA Board of Governors’ resolution, said: “The policies and actions of the mullahs’ regime, five years after the nuclear deal with the P5 + 1 countries, leave no doubt that this regime has never give up the project to acquire an atomic bomb and continues the deception and concealment. The regime uses all the facilities and concessions that the nuclear deal has given it to pursue terrorism, foreign warfare and domestic repression.”
The Iranian regime used loopholes in its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), to secretly pursue its longtime dream of obtaining a nuclear bomb.
Immediately after the P5+1 and Iran’s regime signed the nuclear deal on July 14, 2015, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi said: “Circumventing six Security Council resolutions would not prevent the mullahs’ deception and the quest to obtain an atomic bomb.”
Activating the trigger mechanism, re-imposing six UNSC resolutions, bringing uranium enrichment to a complete halt, closure of nuclear sites, having access to any suspicious site at any time, are needed to prevent the Iranian regime’s access to the A bomb.https://t.co/fa7cgF3p0E

Citing the regime’s malign activities, United States withdrew from the JCPOA and reimposed sanctions on the regime. The regime followed its old method of blackmailing and nuclear extortion by gradually reducing its so-called “commitments” to the JCPOA.
In this regard, in an interview with the Fars News Agency on April 5, Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Iranian regime’s Atomic Energy Organization, acknowledged: “Nuclear activities, as well as research and development on the nuclear fuel cycle, uranium conversion, and enrichment (including production and storage), are being carried out without any restrictions…. Enriched uranium production and stockpile are now as high as pre -JCPOA period, heavy water storage is being carried out without any restrictions the process of building the Arak heavy water research reactor (new design) is advancing in cooperation with foreign parties and the use of related equipment.” He continued: “Despite the JCPOA, many research activities have continued (such as research on high-quality, high-performance centrifuges). It’s a logical combination of improving quality and increasing quantity … like using new centrifuges, besides increasing the number of old running machines.”
Salehi’s remarks, the regime’s breaches of its commitments under the terms of the JCPOA, and most importantly the new IAEA resolution and report are good indications that the mullahs’ regime has never abandoned its nuclear weapons project and continues to hide and provide false and misleading information while accelerating its illegal nuclear activities by taking advantage of the global coronavirus crisis.
The Iranian Resistance was the first party to expose the regime’s secret nuclear activities for obtaining a nuclear bomb. The Natanz uranium enrichment site and Arak heavy water facility were revealed by the NCRI and MEK in August 2002, and subsequent revelations, unveiled the extent to which the regime’s clandestine nuclear weapons work had advanced.
The number one state sponsor of terrorism obtaining a nuclear bomb has been and is a serious danger not only for the Iranian people, but it is a catastrophe for the Middle East and across the globe. As Mrs. Rajavi said: “Activating the ‘snapback’ mechanism, reinstating six Security Council resolutions, completely halting enrichment, closing the nuclear sites, and anywhere, anytime inspections are imperative in preventing Iran’s ruling religious fascism to acquire the atomic bomb.”
