Mottaki: Iran Seeks Peaceful N. Activities

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki reiterated on Wednesday that Iran seeks peaceful and legitimate nuclear activities, stressing Tehran's readiness to negotiate over various issues.



Mottaki made the remarks during a joint press conference with his visiting counterpart from Lesotho, commenting on the recent statements made by some of the US officials claiming that Iran was trying to develop atomic weapons.

He also underlined that the claims made by some US officials about Iran's peaceful nuclear program have even made tired the American people.

Iran, two years ago, responded to questions about its peaceful nuclear program based on an agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mottaki said.

"On that time, the IAEA was to announce that Iran's nuclear activities were peaceful and that the agency's probe into the case was finished but it was stopped by pressures exerted by the (George W) Bush administration," said the Iranian foreign minister.

He added that since 2007 it has been announced that the case of Iran's nuclear program was over.
