Tehran, Iran, Mar. 29 – Iran has officially informed the United Nations nuclear watchdog that it has partly suspended its cooperation with the agency, state media reported on Thursday.

The announcement came less than a week after the United Nations Security Council imposed greater sanctions against Tehran over its failure to suspend uranium enrichment activities as had been demanded of it by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

“Today a letter was given to Iran’s permanent representation in the IAEA regarding the government’s recent ratification to withdraw some of Iran’s cooperation with the IAEA in reaction to [Security Council”> Resolution 1747. The letter will be handed over to the IAEA’s secretariat in the coming hours”, the state-run news agency ISNA quoted an unnamed official as saying.

The official said that the letter contained the text of the government ratification on the suspension of cooperation along with a statement of reasons.

Iran’s official news agency IRNA reported soon after that the cabinet ratification on its withdrawal from the IAEA Safeguards Agreement was officially communicated to IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei on Thursday.

Tehran had approved the Safeguards Agreement on February 25, 2003.
