Hans BlixA former chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has expressed support for Iran’s right to enrich uranium under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

In an interview with Iranian state TV on Wednesday evening, Blix said that Tehran is implementing the NPT and,

hence, is entitled to uranium enrichment.

He said many other NPT member states such as Japan and Brazil are enriching uranium, adding that South Korea also has nuclear plants.

Under Article IV of the NPT, Iran, as a signatory to the treaty, has an “inalienable right” to “develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination.”

Commenting on US double standards vis-à-vis Israel’s nuclear installations, he said Washington is either unwilling, or unable to take any action in that regard.
The world is not happy with Israel’s nuclear arsenal and everybody seeks to make Tel Aviv discard its nuclear warheads, Blix noted.

Iran has repeatedly called for a Middle East region free of nuclear weapons, but Israel has, so far, not allowed it to materialize, said the former IAEA director general.

Israel, widely believed to possess between 200 to 400 nuclear warheads in its arsenals, refuses to either allow inspections of its nuclear facilities or join the NPT.

Blix’s remarks come as a fresh round of high-level nuclear talks between Iran and the six world powers – the United States, France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany – is underway in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

Iran and the P5+1 group are working to hammer out a comprehensive deal following the interim accord that was reached in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 24, 2013 and went into force on January 20 this year.
