Iran Warned IAEA Chief: If He Leaked Details Of Side Deals He’d Be “Harmed”
This seems like a story out of the Soprano’s. Iran’s state-run Fars News Agency is reporting that Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano didn’t disclose the side-deals they made with the rogue regime because they threatened him with bodily harm.
“In a letter to Yukiya Amano, we underlined that if the secrets of the agreement (roadmap between Iran and the IAEA) are revealed, we will lose our trust in the Agency; and despite the US Congress’s pressures, he didn’t give any information to them,” Spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said in a meeting with the Iranian lawmakers in Tehran on Monday
[Cue the Godfather music] “Had he done so, he himself would have been harmed,” he added.
In relevant remarks early this month, Iran’s Envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency Reza Najafi warned the UN nuclear watchdog to avoid disclosing its secret agreements with Tehran.
“The agreements signed between a member country and the IAEA are definitely secret and cannot be presented to any other country at all,” Najafi said.
Referring to the discussions at the US Congress during which the US officials elaborated on the nuclear agreement between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany), he said, “The discussions revealed that the secret texts between Iran and the Agency have not even been provided to the US administration.”
“For the very same reason, they cannot be presented to the Senate members either,” Najafi added.
I believe that is called buying a pig in a poke. How could the U.S. agree to a deal without knowing all the specifics? How could anyone expect congress to pass such a deal? Only a U.S. president who cares about his short term legacy over the future of his children and mine.
“Iran has clarified it to Amano that the text of its understanding with the IAEA cannot be presented to the Senate,” Najafi reiterated.
He further warned that “the Agency knows what it means to disclose a secret document”.
Well in The Godfather it meant something like this:
The Iranian envoy also cautioned Amano that he is duty bound now to accept possible invitations of other countries’ legislatures after he accepted to attend a US Senate meeting.
