TEHRAN, December 16. /TASS/. The adoption of the resolution on closing the PMD (possible military dimension) issue in Iran’s nuclear program by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has become the breakthrough in relations between IAEA and Iran, Iranian Atomic Energy Organization head Ali Akbar Salehi told IRINN TV channel on Wednesday.
"Closing the 12-year-old issue of PMD has become the breakthrough in the history of relations between IAEA and Iran," Salehi said adding that the resolution adopted on Tuesday confirmed that Iran’s nuclear research has always been peaceful.
Salehi stressed that Tehran always refuted allegations that Iran conducted research into modelling a nuclear explosion until 2003. These allegations were considered when a decision was made on imposing sanctions on Iran.
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.
