Iran Won't Cooperate with IAEA

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - TEHERAN, Iran - Former nuclear negotiator and newly elected parliament speaker Ali Larijani said Iran may not cooperate further with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Following his unanimous election as speaker Wednesday, Larijani told lawmakers that the IAEA's latest report is "deplorable," bringing shouts of "Allah Akbar" (Allah is greater) and "Death to America" from the floor of the house.

"We recommend them not to clandestinely keep passing Iran's nuclear dossier between the IAEA and Five-Plus-One group," Larijani said. "This parliament won't allow such deception," he said at an open session of the legislature, which was carried live on state-run radio.

"Should this behavior continue, the parliament…will set new limits on cooperation with the IAEA," he said.

Larijani didn't provide any details on how the Islamic Republic plans to respond to the IAEA's report claiming that Iranian officials provide illusive answers to its investigators' queries.
