( http://www.irna.ir/en ) - Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Larijani said here talks about Iran's nuclear program must be only in the framework of IAEA and upon a joint paradigm.
Speaking to reporters at Rome airport, Larijani called his latest negotiations with Belgian foreign minister and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Muhamed ElBaradei 'constructive and useful'.
He added, "We had long discussions with Dr. ElBaradei concerning nuclear talks and finding ways to solve the issue in a logical and wise manner."
Of course, sending the dossier to the UN Security Council and issuing a resolution, has increased the dossier's political dimension, Larijani continued.
He said, "Dr. ElBaradei and I both believe that this issue should be solved in principle in the agency, because IAEA is a supervisional body and a center of professional work in this concern."
Larijani stressed that the issue has its own complexity, but if the sides can reach an agreement upon NPT, then the talks could continue and could be constructive.
But a negotiation without a joint paradigm can lead to an unsatisfactory situation, he continued.
Larijani concluded, naturally, Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), IAEA's charter and regulation are the main principles of the joint paradigm.
