Tehran, Iran, Jan. 31 – Iran’s nuclear point-man Ali Larijani said Tuesday evening that the Islamic Republic will end snap inspections of its nuclear facilities by international inspectors if the UN nuclear agency’s board of governors went ahead as is expected to report Tehran to the Security Council.

Larijani, who heads the Supreme National Security Council and is Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, had earlier in the day said that reporting or referring Iran’s nuclear file to the UN Security Council meant the “end of diplomacy”.

Speaking to reporters later in the day after a meeting with a official from Armenia, Larijani said that a statement by the Security Council’s Permanent 5 as well as Germany showed that the European Union did not have the “capacity” to resolve the international standoff over Tehran’s sensitive nuclear work.

The West suspects that Tehran is developing nuclear weapons under the pretext of nuclear power production.

Larijani said that the Islamic Republic had to look for a solution other than negotiations with the EU to find a solution the impasse.

“It is not clear that this path is to their benefit, since we are forced in accordance with the law ratified in Majlis to remove all suspension and stop adhering to the [nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty’s”> Additional Protocol”.

Under the NPT’s Additional Protocol inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency must be granted access to declared nuclear sites to carry out spot inspections.

While it had been negotiating with the EU, Iran had suspended the enrichment of uranium which can be used in nuclear weapons, but Larijani’s comments confirmed that Tehran plans to resume the activity.
