(IRNA) - Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei, who arrived in Ankara on Thursday afternoon, said that a peaceful solution to Iran's nuclear issue will benefit all parties.
He made the remark at the end of his meeting with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan while speaking to reporters.
The IAEA chief said that he agrees with Turkey's prime minister that the issue should be solved through peaceful ways, reports Trend.
"Solving the issue politically will be to the interest of all parties, given that in this case Iran will enjoy its right to access nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and a regional crisis will be prevented," he added.
In response to a question about the project on Turkey's nuclear power plant and the uranium enrichment issue in this country, ElBaradei said that such activities should be conducted under the supervision of the agency.
Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul is also scheduled to confer with ElBaradei after his return from Washington on Friday.
On arrival at Ankara airport, the agency chief had told the media that he will confer with Turkish officials on Iran's nuclear issue and Turkey's nuclear power plant project.
He appreciated Turkey's efforts towards solving Iran's nuclear issue politically.
Turkey seeks to establish a nuclear power plant in the Black Sea coastal city of Sinop to the north of the country.
