BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – Mojtaba Dhul-Nur, head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee in the Iranian parliament, threatened to dismantle the IAEA’s surveillance cameras in nuclear facilities if sanctions continued.
The Iranian official pointed out that the additional protocol will also be suspended on February 21 in the event that sanctions against Iran are not lifted.
Dhul-Nur stressed that Tehran’s cooperation with international inspectors will be limited to the NPT, only in the event that oil sanctions are not lifted and banking relations with Iran normalize by February 21.
He said that the Iranian government is obligated to implement the law, and in the event that it refuses to dismantle the surveillance cameras and stop the implementation of the additional protocol, it will be prosecuted according to parliamentary legislation.
Lastly, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said earlier Tuesday that Tehran is committed to producing uranium metal and advanced fuel for peaceful purposes only.
