UN Iran has aggressively announced that it will no longer provide surveillance camera footage of its nuclear facilities to internationals, as previously agreed.
Following the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, Iran has agreed to pursue its nuclear program with the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
As part of this, Iran agreed to install state-of-the-art surveillance cameras and submit their daily recordings to the IAEA Monitoring Group, which will enable the IAEA to continue monitoring activities at its nuclear facilities.
In this case, the UN. Iran’s parliament passed a resolution last December banning surveillance cameras from monitoring nuclear facilities.
The resolution called on the IAEA to suspend surveillance camera recordings unless European signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) take steps to lift their oil embargo and international banking ban.
In a televised interview on Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said:
Iran’s oil exports have not been lifted as a result of the UN ban on international bank transactions. The group will cease to provide monitoring records of nuclear power plants.
This is not a deadline against the nations of the world, nor a barrier against the IAEA. This is a matter between the Iranian parliament and the government.
Democratic rule is taking place in Iran. Here the government has to implement the law passed by the parliament.
Under that law, the UN is no longer subject to the authorities. Surveillance camera recordings of nuclear power plants cannot be provided to consumers.
Jawad Sharif said it was a political decision, not a legal one.
The United States, Russia, Britain, France and China have joined the UN. The 2015 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty was signed between the 5 permanent members of the Security Council and the P5 + 1 countries, including Jomann, and Iran.
The agreement was signed by Iran and the P5 + 1 countries, which agreed to lift sanctions on the country instead to ensure that their nuclear programs were not for the development of nuclear weapons.
However, the former President Donald Trump administration announced in 2018 that it was withdrawing from the agreement reached during the Obama administration. Trump re-imposed sanctions on Iran as a result of the agreement.
In retaliation, Iran withdrew from some of the terms it had agreed to in the nuclear deal. The country has also announced that it will violate the surveillance camera agreement it currently has with the IAEA.
