ABU DHABI, August 23. /TASS/. Iran rejected reports claiming the Islamic Republic and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) plan to sign a side agreement on details of inspection of Iranian nuclear facilities, the Tasnim News Agency reported on Sunday.
Deputy chief of the Iranian security service, Ali Hoseini Tash, said "there does not exist any signed agreement between the National Security Council and IAEA, and issues of the kind are outside competence of the Council’s secretariat."
Several days earlier, some media said Iran and IAEA are about to sign a side agreement, under which Iranian inspectors could be allowed to inspect themselves the facility, which, the West claims, may be producing nuclear energy. The articles read the side agreement would be signed by Ali Hoseini Tash, a high-ranking official.
In July, the UN Security Council has unanimously adopted the resolution in support of the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program. According to the document, all international sanctions will be lifted from Iran in 10 years if Tehran fulfills all conditions agreed with P5+1 group of international mediators (five permanent members of UN Security Council and Germany) in Vienna.
The resolution also envisages easing sanctions against Iran after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) submits a report confirming Tehran’s compliance with the terms of the deal. The UN Security Council also reinforced the mechanism of returning all restrictions in case Iran violates the terms of the agreement.
