A senior Iranian lawmaker is worried that President Donald Trump may leak secret documents related to Iran’s nuclear program.
Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the head of Iran’s parliamentary Commission on Foreign Policy and National Security, claimed that any attempt by Trump to publish documents relating to Iran’s nuclear program from the International Atomic Energy Agency would represent a violation.
“If Trump wants to publish confidential documents exchanged between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency, it will in fact constitute a violation of the agency’s obligations, because the agency has been committed not to make Iran’s confidential nuclear information and documents available to any country, including the US,” said Boroujerdi, as reported by Iran’s Fars News Monday.
The lawmaker claimed that the IAEA, the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog agency, promised not to allow any information about the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action to be leaked. The Trump transition team was considering publishing some of the secret side deals associated as part of the original agreement after Trump’s inauguration, The Daily Beast reported in December.
Iran’s fears may be justified, according to some experts, as the information contained in the secret side deals could cast further doubt on JCPOA itself.Read the rest of the story HERE.
