Envoy: IAEA Report Indicates Peaceful Nature of Iran's N. Program

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Residing Representative at the International Atomic Energy Agency Ali Asqar Soltaniyeh underscored that the recent report released by the IAEA on Iran approves the peaceful nature and transparency of the country's nuclear activities.

Speaking to reporters after his address at the session of the Board of Governors in Vienna, Australia, Soltaniyeh referred to the IAEA Secretary-General Yukiya Amano's new report on Iran's nuclear program, and said, "This report clearly indicates the technical and scientific status of Iran in its peaceful nuclear activities and therefore carries an important message for the entire world nations."

"In fact, this report is a clear indication of the fact that Iran is successfully pursuing its nuclear activities for peaceful purposes and that is the message it has for the world," Soltaniyeh added.

In the agency's new report there is no document as proof for Iran's deviation towards military nuclear objectives, while every single centrifuge and every single gram of Iran's enriched uranium is under the close inspection of the IAEA inspectors and surveillance of their round the clock working cameras, the Iranian diplomat explained.

Amano released his quarterly Iran Safeguards Report in mid-May which was, in fact, a repetition of his previous periodical reports presented to the Board of Governors of the IAEA every three months.

Iran says the framework of the modality plan should once and for all clarify the measures that Tehran should adopt, and the other side's undertakings should also be clear and definite vis-à-vis those measures.

In the latest development, Iran and the IAEA wrapped up their latest round of talks on Tehran's peaceful nuclear program on May 15. Their talks focused on a technical framework for cooperation.

Iran's residing representative at IAEA Ali Asqar Soltaniyeh and Head of IAEA's Department of Safeguards Herman Nackaerts jointly presided over the meeting in the Austrian capital.

The IAEA inspectors have conducted numerous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but have never found any evidence showing diversion from peaceful purposes in the Iranian nuclear energy program.
