( IRNA ) - Iran said it would welcome an active and innovative role by different states in its peaceful nuclear case.
Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Larijani made the remark while speaking to reporters at Tehran Mehrabad International Airport upon his return from a seven-day visit to Europe.
"We will be glad to see different countries play an innovative and active role in Iran's nuclear case. We welcome any state intending to play a role in this respect," he said.
He stressed, "Doors of all Iranian nuclear facilities are open to the IAEA. Any supervision over the country's nuclear facilities should be based on international and IAEA regulations."
Asked whether the issue of suspension had been raised in his recent talks with the EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana in Madrid on May 31, Larijani said, "The course of the current talks is different. A period of 1.5 years for challenge over suspension is enough."
In response to a question whether he had discussed the so-called Swiss plan in his talks with Swiss officials, Iran's top nuclear negotiator said the plan lacks a precise framework unlike what has been raised.
"A new round of talks was held with them (Swiss officials).
Switzerland can be active in the framework Solana and we are pursuing.
"They should conform themselves in proportion with the ongoing situation."
Larijani said the Swiss plan cannot be a basis due to certain misinterpretations and added, "But it can be amended."
Pointing to Russia's concerns over the US anti-missile shield in Europe, he said it was surprising to learn that the anti-missile shield has been designed under the pretext that Iranian missiles have the capability to reach Europe.
The SNSC secretary said the US and Russia had reached agreement on the missile issues, adding, "If any side intends to pull out of the treaty, it does not need to use other issues as a pretext." He added US claims on establishing an anti-missile shield in Europe against Iran's missiles were "a political entertainment which lack logical basis".
"Iranian missile have no European range at all. We have not targeted Europe and will not do in the future because they are our trade partners."
