TEHRAN – The latest quarterly report of the International Atomic Energy Agency on Iran's nuclear program is a repetition of previous "baseless cases" with "political purposes," spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said on Thursday.
Some phrases in the IAEA's report about Iran's nuclear program are "ambiguous and full of unnecessary details" which have resulted in "distortion" and misinterpretations by some media seeking to induce the "non-peaceful" nature of Iran's nuclear activities, Behrouz Kamalvandi was quoted as saying by the AEOI website.
The West should not expect Iran to be open to "extra-safeguards inspections," while they do not adhere to their obligations and their "cruel" sanctions against the Iranian nation continue, said a spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran
The "re-establishment of the previous verification system (as per Iran's nuclear activities) requires the parties to the 2015 nuclear deal to fulfill their obligations," he noted.

The West should not expect Iran to be open to "extra-safeguards inspections," while they do not adhere to their obligations and their "cruel" sanctions against the Iranian nation continue, Kamalvandi added.
The UN nuclear watchdog said in a new report on Wednesday that it was "not in a position to provide assurance that Iran's nuclear program is exclusively peaceful" and that "no progress" has been made in resolving questions about the past traces of nuclear material in Iran's "three undeclared sites."
In June, the IAEA's Board of Governors adopted an anti-Iran resolution proposed by the United States and its three European allies, Britain, France, and Germany, accusing Iran of non-cooperation with the agency.

Following the move, Iran began injecting uranium gas into advanced centrifuges and disconnected some of the IAEA's cameras monitoring its sites.
