Soltaniyeh: Iran Continues N. Activities under IAEA Supervision

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Permanent Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asqar Soltaniyeh announced on Saturday that Iran is continuing its nuclear activities under the supervision of the UN nuclear watchdog.

"The report by (IAEA Head Yukiya) Amano shows that Iran's nuclear activities, including enrichment, are continued successfully under the supervision of the Agency," Soltaniyeh told FNA, referring to Amano's latest report on Iran's nuclear activities.

"The report endorses this reality that the Agency's inspections are continued with no problem or barrier, whose results say no evidence has been found on the diversion of Iran's nuclear materials, facilities and activities towards military goals," Soltaniyeh said.

A new report by Amano on Iran's peaceful nuclear technology activities was released late Thursday and its copies were submitted to the members of the IAEA board of governors.

Amano in his report to the IAEA's 35-member Board of Governors once again verified Iran's non-diversion of declared nuclear material, adding that the UN agency has failed to discover any components of a nuclear weapon in Iran.

Washington and its Western allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while they have never presented any corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations. Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

The UN nuclear watchdog has also carried out frequent surprise inspections of Iran's nuclear sites so far, but found nothing to support West's allegations.

The Vienna-based UN nuclear watchdog continues snap inspections of Iranian nuclear sites and has reported that all declared nuclear material in Iran has been accounted for, and therefore such material is not diverted to prohibited activities.
