Iranian representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh called for the West not to miss the opportunity created by Iran's letter to Vienna Group over providing fuel for Tehran research reactor, ISNA news agency reported.
Regarding the message of Iran's letter to Vienna Group, Soltanieh said, "the main message of the letter is that Iran is ready to engage in talks for supplement of fuel for Tehran research rector without any precondition by Vienna Group."
"We hope that the West and the US lay aside their political intentions and do not miss the opportunity," he told Sahar English TV Channel Sunday night.
Soltanieh reiterated that Iran's nuclear work is legal and that the country has never violated the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) so far.
"All reports released by the agency show that Iran has never sought military weapons and the country has never posed any obstacle to the IAEA inspection process," he added.
