Iran: US statement about nuclear deal is biased

Spokeswoman of the Iranian foreign ministry Marzieh Afkham said on Friday that the US statement about the conditions of the nuclear deal is based on "unilateral and biased reading."


The Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported Afkham saying: "This will never be the right criteria to evaluate how the deal is going to be implemented." She refers to the deal signed between Iran and the great world powers, the US, the UK, Russia, France, Germany and China.

The deal is aimed at putting limits on Iran's nuclear activities for six months under the IAEA in return for the partial lifting of economic sanctions. The deal is expected to start on Monday.

IAEA officials said that their inspectors are expected to arrive in Tehran on Saturday to begin inspecting nuclear activities included in the deal. They are to check whether Iran has abided by its pledges in the deal.

Spokesman of the US presidency Jai Karni said that a small number of US Congress officials have seen the deal. The White House was obliged to expose the deal to some officials to refute claims that it contains secret articles.
