Entry of IAEA Inspectors Banned in case of Sanctions

TERHAN (Fars News Agency)- An Iranian MP stressed that in case the UN Security Council embarks on imposing sanctions on the Islamic Republic, Tehran will consequently ban entry of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors into Iran.

Speaking to FNA here on Wednesday, member of the Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hamid Reza Haji Baba’ee noted the parliament’s preparedness to put into effect the said bill on banning IAEA inspections of Iranian sites and facilities, and said, “The draft bill on banning entry of IAEA inspectors into Iran will be put into effect as soon as the UN Security Council ratifies a resolution on imposing sanctions against Iran.”

“The issue has already been announced publicly by the Islamic Consultative Assembly,” he said, adding that the bill is waiting to be introduced to the parliament officially.

The lawmaker continued, “As soon as the UNSC ratifies the said resolution, the parliament will study and approve the bill with urgency.”

The EU3, i.e. Britain, Germany and France, on Tuesday circulated their own draft resolution imposing nuclear and missile-related sanctions on Iran after failing to reach agreement with the US.
