The statements were made by Iranian Parliament spokesman Muhammad Baqer Qalibaf on state television.
Iran will enrich and store uranium at levels much higher than those permitted under the 2015 nuclear deal.
In this regard, and based on the fact that the three-month period ends, the International Atomic Energy Agency certainly [AIEA, na sigla em inglês] “You will not have the right to access the photos,” said Muhammad Baqir Qalibaf.
In 2017, under the so-called “Additional Protocol” with Iran, the agency said, “it collects and analyzes hundreds of thousands of images captured daily with advanced surveillance cameras.”
The agency also said at the time that it had placed “2,000 tamper proof seals on nuclear materials and equipment.”
Iran’s parliament passed a bill in December that is expected to suspend part of the UN inspections of its nuclear facilities if the European signatories do not ease sanctions on oil and banks by February.
Then the International Atomic Energy Agency concluded a three-month agreement with Iran to keep the Iranian surveillance images, with Tehran threatening to remove them later if no agreement is reached.
Qalibaf also indicated that Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the last word on all state affairs, supported the decision.
