Iran reminds IAEA of its ‘immediate, primary responsibility’ over Fakhrizadeh killing

Iran’s envoy to Vienna-based international organizations has rapped the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for keeping silent over the recent assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

Kazem Gharibabadi told reporters on Monday that the IAEA is expected to clearly declare its stance regarding the recent act of terrorism and strongly condemn it.

“The IAEA has an immediate and primary responsibility toward the member state (Iran) that has accepted the highest level of the Agency’s inspections, has the most transparent nuclear program as it implements various commitments, but its scientists are exposed to assassination threats or are targeted by terrorists, and its nuclear facilities are exposed to aggression or are targeted with sabotage,” Gharibabadi said.

His comments came in criticism of the UN nuclear watchdog’s chief who has not only refused to condemn the Friday assassination of Fakhrizadeh, but has also warned Iran against halting the international inspections of its nuclear sites in reaction to the assassination.
