Iran's FM Zarif: US experiences another political defeat at IAEA BoG

Iran's FM Zarif: US experiences another political defeat at IAEA BoG

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif believes that the United States has been defeated politically as it could not make even a sentence of a statement at the IAEA against Iran.

On Wednesday (July 10), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors at the request of Washington held An emergency meeting in Vienna Austria, on Verification and Monitoring in the Islamic Republic of Iran in Light of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 (2015), IRNA reported.

Iran's Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the International Organizations in Vienna Kazem Gharibabadi said on Thursday that the Wednesday meeting in the Austrian capital had no outcomes for the US as the participating states condemned Washington's unilateralism.

As the Iranian foreign minister said, the US has become isolated in the political arena worldwide.

The US officials thought in vain that they can condemn Iran by holding the IAEA emergency session, Zarif said at a meeting held in Tehran with participation of governors from across the country.

They vainly thought they can crumble the country by imposing economic sanctions, said the foreign minister.

US President Donald Trump reinstated unilateral sanctions on Tehran on November 5, 2018, and imposed as he claimed the “highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic of Iran.

In response to the US unilateral measures and its May 2018 illegal withdrawal from the July 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers, Tehran did reduce its commitments based on the international deal, aka Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The JCPOA Article 36, under the Dispute Resolution Mechanism, says, "If Iran believed that any or all of the E3/EU+3 were not meeting their commitments under this JCPOA, Iran could refer the issue to the Joint Commission for resolution."
