IAEA Report: Iran Nuclear Program PeacefulIAEA Report: Iran Nuclear Program Peaceful

A senior nuclear negotiator said the latest report by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Iran’s past and present nuclear activities proves the peaceful nature of the country’s program.

Hamid Baeidinejad said the IAEA “explicitly and absolutely declares at the end of the report that it has not found any sign of diversion” in the program.

The report “has verified the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program in the strongest possible terms,” Baeidinejad wrote on his Instagram page, according to Press TV. On Wednesday, the IAEA said it had found no indications of diversion of nuclear material in connection with the so-called possible military dimensions of Iran’s nuclear program. The agency’s board of governors is set to hold a meeting on December 15 to make a final decision on Iran’s case. Tehran says it will implement the July nuclear deal with major powers once the file is completely closed. Baeidinejad believes the IAEA report leaves the board of governors with no choice but to close the file.
