IRI Embassy in Japan attacks Japan Times article

Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi
IRNA, one of the regime's many news agencies reports that the regime's embassy in Tokyo has scorned Japan Times for an article and has demanded that the paper make immediate corrections. The article entitled "Tehran's regime must pay attention to requests" which directly points to the issues of the regime's nuclear dossier also mentions the latest resolution for the IAEA's Board of Governors and the discussions with the Europeans; the IRI Embassy in Tokyo however has essentially claimed that this article contains "lies and means to mislead people." The statement from the IRI Embassy also goes on to say: "What the IRI insists upon is the legal and recognized right that is clearly stated in the NPT even; the IRI will never expect more than that and based on those demands is willing to cooperate with the IAEA and countries who are willing to accept the regimes' word."
