IAEA to Discuss Amano's Report on Iran in Vienna Today
TEHRAN (FNA)- The member states of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are slated to convene in Vienna on Monday to study a recent report by the UN nuclear watchdog chief, Yukiya Amano, on Iran's peaceful nuclear activities.
Amano released his quarterly Iran Safeguards Report in mid-May which was, in fact, a repetition of his past periodical reports presented to 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.
Iran has repeatedly announced that if its rights to use the civilian nuclear technology are recognized, the country will be ready to remove alleged concerns about Parchin military site, stressing that Parchin is just a military site and has never been used for nuclear purposes.
