Tehran: Iran has vowed never to back down from its positions despite an anti-Iran resolution adopted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Wednesday, according to a statement issued by the Iranian presidency early Friday.
“Such measures can never stymie the Iranian nation’s progress,” Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi told reporters on Thursday evening, adding Iranians’ “legitimate” rights must be recognized.
On Wednesday, the IAEA’s Board of Governors passed a resolution proposed by the United States, Britain, France and Germany following recent IAEA reports that Iran has not provided “technically credible explanations” for uranium particles at three undeclared sites.
Iranian officials, however, have insisted that the country did not carry out any clandestine and unrecorded nuclear activities.
In the wake of the adoption of the IAEA resolution, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran announced its decision to turn off two surveillance cameras of the IAEA, state-run IRIB TV reported.
On Thursday, the IAEA said Iran told the agency that it is removing 27 surveillance cameras from its nuclear facilities.
