Iran May Stop Cooperation with IAEA If US Leaks Secret 'Obama & Iran' Nuclear Documents. (IFP).
During the US election campaign, reports circulated indicating that Trump would reveal certain documents on Iran’s nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), allegedly kept hidden by Obama administration.
An article carried by the Daily Beast website late last December quoted an “individual who has participated in those conversations” as saying that “senior officials who will be part of the Trump administration are already discussing what so-far-unseen information about the Iran agreement they will be able to make public after January.”
A number of Iranian parliamentarians have commented on the US President Donald Trump’s threat of publicizing the secret nuclear documents between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), saying such threats may lead to Iran’s decision to stop cooperation with the Agency.
Referring to Trump’s threat to disclose Iran’s secret documents pertaining to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Jamali Nobandegani, who is also a member of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said threatening Tehran with claims about publicizing such [secret nuclear] documents is an old trick.
“Most of the so-called IAEA agents who are dispatched to other countries [for inspecting nuclear facilities and activities] are, in fact, undercover agents of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Mossad — Israel’s intelligence agency. In the past, prior to the raising of the nuclear issue by the IAEA, American and European media published Iran’s documents.”
“Since the IAEA’s director general is appointed by the direct vote of the US and other Western countries, he does not have the freedom and authority to make independent decisions and, thus, fails to guarantee the fulfilment of the Agency’s commitments,” he went on to say.
Referring to the leak of the secret documents between Iran and IAEA in the past, Jamali Nobandegani stressed that in case of another disclosure [of such documents], the international community will eventually notice the IAEA’s lack of commitment, understand the reason behind Iran’s reluctance to cooperate with the agency and respect the country’s decision.
Therefore, in case Trump carries out its threat of publishing the documents, the Iranian government will definitely take necessary measures to reciprocate.
Among Iran’s measure may be suspending cooperation with the IAEA, as these documents are directly related to the country’s national security and a nation’s security is not negotiable and tradable. Hmmm....Why shouldn't the America public be informed of the 'backroom' deals the Obama 'admin' made with Iran? Read the full story here.
