A famous Iraqi political analyst Mohammad Abbas Al-tamimi said to ILNA news agency that role of Yukiya Amano was impressive in signing Iran's nuclear deal during the Barack Obama era.
Speaking to ILNA news agency, the professor at the University of Baghdad added “The review of Amano's official remarks reflects his positive view on Iran's nuclear program, so he was heavily involved in the negotiations that led to the landmark Iran nuclear deal.
Yukiya Amano, the Japanese diplomat who led the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for a decade has died at 72, the agency announced Monday. The news of his death comes at a time of increasing concerns and escalating tensions over Iran's nuclear program, after U.S.
The IAEA said Mary Alice Hayward, the agency's deputy director general and head of the department of management, would lead the agency in the interim.
“After the death of the Director General of the IAEA, the United States will undoubtedly support those who oppose the Iranian nuclear program,” Abbas Al-tamimi said.
He added “U.S. position can increase tensions between Tehran and Washington.”
Iraqi political analyst said that by using the new conditions, the United States seeks to control Iran's political behavior in pursuit of its first and lasting goal which is to guarantee Israel's security.
The U.S. unilaterally withdrew from the accord a year ago and Iran has recently inched past limits of its uranium enrichment set out in the accord. European leaders are scrambling to keep the accord intact.
Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araghchi expressed his condolences, writing on Twitter that they had worked closely together and commending Amano's professionalism. He said they had ensured Iran's compliance with the JCPOA, the nuclear accord that Iran struck with world powers in 2015 that is now unraveling under pressure from the Trump administration.
