Iran's Ambassador to International Atomic Energy Agency, Ali Asghar Soltanieh on Friday called IAEA chief's latest report on Iran's nuclear program a positive one which proved peaceful identity of Tehran's nuclear activities, IRNA reported.

"IAEA report showed Tehran's progress in nuclear technology including the enrichment issue, as well as its complete cooperation with the agency; the 11-page report which involves the complete reports of inspection of 16 nuclear centers and 10 secondary sites proves the peaceful identity of Iran nuclear activities", he said.

According to Soltanieh, Amano's recent visit to Tehran was an important part of what he called "Iranian officials' efforts to acquire the trust of IAEA and answer the inspector's questions".

"Iran has produced 6,197 kilograms of 5 percent degree uranium and 145.6 kilograms of 20 percent degree uranium under the IAEA supervision", said Soltanieh.

IAEA board of Governors will discuss IAEA chief's new report on Iran's nuclear program on June 4.
