Statement by Ambassador Gharibabadi before the IAEA BoG meeting in tribute to the late DG Amano

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful



Madam Chairperson, 

Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,


Passing away of the Director General, Mr. Yukiya Amano is a very sad news. His character is highly acknowledged; his service to the international community is widely commended; and his devotion to uphold the cause of the Agency is broadly appreciated. This is indeed a great loss for the Agency and the international community.

His key role in enhancing the effectiveness of and achieving the objectives of the Agency will never fade away in the history of the Agency.  Mr. Amano was committed to crystalizing the inherent objectives of the Agency with a bright view to achieving a more peaceful and prosperous world. 

Closely working with Iran in the past decade, visiting several times my country, engaging personally with different relevant officials and the Permanent Mission, he also was a stalwart supporter of the JCPOA from its inception, whose skillful and professional performance as DG of the IAEA resulted in complete closure of the so-called PMD and 15 consecutive reports confirming Iran’s full compliance with the JCPOA.

We expect his successor to follow the same path and the Agency to continue to be professional, impartial, and Independent.

Madam Chairperson,

The Islamic Republic of Iran would like to express its sincere condolences and sympathy to the Director General's family and the staff of the IAEA as well as to the people and Government of Japan. Indeed, our thoughts and prayers go out to his beloved ones. May the Almighty rest his sole in peace.

I thank you Madam Chairperson.
