TEHRAN (Press Shia) – The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said the Islamic Republic has adopted a “transparent approach” in its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
“International day for the elimination of nuclear weapons, provides an opportunity to correct and modify the global tyrannical mentality concerning the #peaceful use of #nuclear_energy.@realDonaldTrump @SecPompeo,” the AEOI tweeted on Saturday marking the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.
“Today, many countries have resorted to the use of nuclear energy, but the Islamic Republic of Iran, with a transparent approach, has demonstrated more cooperation with the @iaeaorg. This issue proves the rightfulness of using this energy for the Iranian people,” it added in a follow-up tweet.
“The @aeoinews with an outlook based on peaceful use of the nuclear technology has promoted its scientific programs in the areas of health, agriculture, food, radiopharmaceuticals, stable isotopes and etc. in a precise and determined manner and #sanctions imposed on #Iranian_nuclear_scientists will not interrupt Iran’s nuclear program strategic principle,” it said in another tweet.
The AEOI further quoted Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei as saying, “The Islamic Republic of Iran has never sought nuclear weapons and will not surrender the right of its people to peaceful use of nuclear energy.”
On Monday, the US slapped new restrictive measures on Iran over its nuclear program, claiming it was enforcing a UN arms embargo.
