"It is true that we have extensive and transparent cooperation with the Agency but this does not mean that we accept any demand by the Agency which is based on the baseless claims of our enemies. No other country will do so either," Qaribabadi told reporters on Tuesday.
His comments came after the western media claimed that the three European members of 2015 nuclear deal have prepared a resolution which calls on Iran to increase cooperation with the IAEA.
"As Iran continues constructive and extensive cooperation with the Agency, introduction of a resolution to demand Iran to show cooperation and accept these two Agency demands is a regretful and fully unconstructive measure," he added.
Qaribabadi blasted the three European states for their inaction in implementation of the nuclear deal, advising them not to make the conditions more complicated and difficult.
"Naturally, in case this resolution with such a fully clear American agenda is approved, the Islamic Republic of Iran will also be forced to adopt the necessary appropriate measures, and those who have led the act should account for such political and destructive approaches," he added.
In relevant remarks on Monday, Iranian Government Spokesman Ali Rabiyee deplored the US and Israel for meddling in the International Atomic Energy Agency's affairs, saying that the IAEA should keep its independence.
“We warn that using political criteria in dealing with the tasks and rights of countries in the IAEA will result in nothing but the breakdown of trust and the growth of instability in the global arena,” Rabiyee told reporters in Tehran.
He also warned the IAEA Board of Governors against falling under Washington and Tel Aviv’s pressure.
Rabiyee criticized politicization of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s reports on Iran’s nuclear activities under the influence of the United States and the Israeli regime, reiterating that the Islamic Republic carries out a peaceful transparent nuclear program.
“We firmly emphasize that we are meeting all our international commitments, as confirmed by the 17 positive reports of IAEA in recent years, and we are carrying out most transparent activities,” he said.
Rabiyee said that the Islamic Republic of Iran has given the highest level of access that a country can give to the IAEA, adding, “We have always been prepared to provide the Agency with the necessary access to (to our facilities) in accordance with previous valid agreements and international regulations.”
He noted that Iran will continue its measures according to the same routine and requirements, calling on the IAEA to set its requests within the framework of the body’s statutes.
Rabiyee lambasted politicization of the international bodies’ reports over Tehran’s nuclear activities, saying, “We expect the members of the IAEA’s Board of Governors to support the independence of this international body against the US’ bullying.”
