Nikki Haley, US Representative to UN Suspects Iran of Hiding Nuclear Program



The US Permanent Representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, who in recent weeks publicly expressed doubts about the feasibility of maintaining the Iranian nuclear deal, on Friday criticized Tehran for not allowing international inspectors to enter military facilities on the territory of the country. The diplomat claimed that the Islamic Republic had in the past concealed its nuclear activities, and also called on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to give maximum attention to this issue.

“I trust the IAEA, but they are dealing with a country that has clearly lied in the past and secretly conducted nuclear programs,” Hayley told reporters in New York on her arrival from Vienna, where she held talks with the leadership of the atomic agency. As noted by the US permanent representative, Iran openly announced that it will not allow inspectors to its military facilities. In addition, she stated that there were “a lot of undeclared facilities” in the country that had not been tested by the IAEA.

According to her, the US calls on the atomic agency to “use all its authority” and closely monitor Iran’s nuclear activities in order to guarantee the country’s compliance with the nuclear deal.

On July 14, 2015, Iran and the six world powers (Russia, Britain, China, the United States, France and Germany) reached an agreement on resolving the long-standing problem of Iran’s nuclear energy by adopting the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (CFA). January 16, 2016, it was announced that the implementation of the SVAP, approved by the UN Security Council resolution, had been launched. This plan provides for the lifting of sanctions imposed on Iran in connection with its nuclear program of the United Nations, the United States and the European Union. In return, Tehran pledged to limit its nuclear activities, placing it under international control.

On August 16, the US permanent representative to the UN questioned the significance of the nuclear deal with Iran, saying that it allows Tehran to “keep the whole world hostage.” In turn, the UN Secretariat this week called on all parties to the agreement “to do everything possible to maintain and support this agreement.
