Iran announced, on Wednesday, the dismantling of the surveillance cameras installed in its facilities under the nuclear agreement, noting that this decision came in response to the “failure” of some of the parties to the agreement to fulfill their commitments.
The head of the Iranian Nuclear Energy Organization, Mohammad Eslami, said in a statement to reporters on the sidelines of the meeting of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, that “the surveillance cameras, which were installed based on the nuclear agreement with Iran, are now disabled.”
He added, “This decision came in response to the failure of the other parties to fulfill their commitments, and therefore there is no need to keep these cameras.”
He noted that he “presented a report during this meeting on the recent visit of the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, to Tehran.”
He added, “The most important aspect of this is focusing on the peaceful Iranian nuclear activities and proceeding with them in accordance with the frameworks of the strategic law issued by Parliament, and not allowing others to accuse us of “misleading” them.”
And Eslami added, “The West had pledged, based on the nuclear agreement, to provide support to Iran, but it did not implement its promises. Therefore, the nuclear achievements inside the country were achieved thanks to the reliance on local energies, and no one has the right to stop this process.”
He referred to the main goals set based on the directives of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei at the Iranian Nuclear Energy Organization, saying that “one of the most important goals that have been placed on the ladder of urgent measures is to raise the volume of electrical energy production at nuclear plants to 8,000 megawatts, so that the people can To feel the effects of peaceful nuclear activities in his country.”
Returning to the surveillance cameras related to the nuclear deal, he explained that “some of them were damaged as a result of terrorist operations, which led to the issuance of two complicated and sabotaged reports.”
