Iran Calls for More UNIDO Aid to World Countries

TEHRAN – Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs, Mohsen Baharvand, has called for increased assistance from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) to member states.
UNIDO’s efforts are essential, Baharvand said, referring to the industrialization process in developing countries during a meeting with Director-General Li Yong.
Rejecting the unilateral US sanctions against Iran and their adverse effects on peoples’ rights, Baharvand called on Li to step up his actions to help member states.
Li described Iran as an essential member of UNIDO and presented a report on the measures taken by the international organization, adding that UNIDO is ready to define new projects in the areas that Iran needs.
Addressing a meeting of the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna on Wednesday, Baharvand said Iran would continue cooperation with the IAEA as before.
“However, we can be assured that the United States cannot introduce any alternatives either for the JCPOA or any other multilateral agreement it has withdrawn from it,” Baharvand said.
