Iranian Envoy: Latest IAEA report on Iran is positive
International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano's latest report has confirmed that Iran's civilian nuclear activities are transparent and have not been diverted, Iran's ambassador to the IAEA says, Press TV reported.
"The director general's report on Iran, as well as reiterating the important message that no deviation of any kind has been observed in the nuclear activities, contains new positive facts," Ali Asghar Soltanieh said on Friday.
He stated that the most notable of the positive points mentions "the positive steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran in line with cooperation and transparency."
"The cooperation of our country in the provision of information and clearing up ambiguities and responding to some of the questions has clearly been mentioned in this report," Soltanieh added.
The Iranian ambassador to the IAEA said the report has more positive sections and thus is a step forward.
On June 9, 2010, the UN Security Council imposed a fourth round of US-engineered sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program, while the United States and the European Union have taken unilateral measures against the Islamic Republic.
Iran has always asserted that as a member of the IAEA and a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes such as electricity generation and medical treatment.
