MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Russia considers the dossier on Iran’s "alleged research" in the sphere of military use of nuclear power closed, Russian Foreign Ministry Ambassador at Large and Moscow’s representative at the International Atomic Energy (IAEA) Board of Governors Grigory Berdennikov said. The text of his speech was published on the official website of the Russian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday.
"We would like to stress the conclusion of the report that says that Iran fulfilled its obligations in the framework of the ‘roadmap’ coordinated with IAEA on July 2015 in Vienna," Berdennikov said. "Along with this, we noted the secretariat’s statements that fulfillment of all measures envisaged by the ‘roadmap’ contributed to the emergence of the complete picture of nuclear research conducted in Iran. According to the report, IAEA did not find any signs of undeclared nuclear material and undeclared nuclear activities which is especially important from the point of view of observing commitments on nuclear non-proliferation since one of the main aims of the guarantee systems is to ensure control over nuclear material," he added.
"We think that this page has been turned in the relations between the Agency (IAEA) and Iran, and the dossier on Tehran’s ‘alleged research’ on nuclear weapons has been closed," he continued. "Future cooperation between Iran and IAEA will be based on the framework traditional for the Agency - the agreement on guarantees, additional protocol and Iran’s voluntary commitments to ensure transparency in the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action," he said.
On 14 July 2015, the P5+1 group of international mediators (five permanent members of UN Security Council - US, UK, Russia, China, France - and Germany) and Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Tehran’s nuclear program. Iran will not produce weapons-grade plutonium and limit its stockpile of uranium enriched to 3.67% to 300 kilograms for the next 15 years. Tehran also agreed to modernize its nuclear facilities and use them for exclusively peaceful purposes.
Sanctions will be gradually removed from Iran. The arms embargo imposed by UN Security Council will be kept in place for five years, ban for supplying ballistic missile technologies to Iran - for eight years. Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will monitor nuclear facilities in Iran for the next 25 years. If any points of the agreement are violated by Iran, sanctions against the country will be renewed.
On July 20, the corresponding resolution on Iran’s nuclear program agreement was adopted by UN Security Council.
