Iranian nuclear facilities may be examined
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 16 / Trend /
Iran invites all countries, including 5 +1 group member-countries to inspect its nuclear facilities, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi was quoted by the official news website of Iranian television iribnews.ir as saying.
"The cooperation between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has always been at a good level," he said. "Iran's nuclear activity is transparent and is under full IAEA supervision."
Iran is fully convinced that its nuclear activities are peaceful, he said.
The U.S. and other Western countries accuse Iran of developing nuclear weapons under the guise of a peaceful nuclear energy program.
Tehran denies all the charges, saying that its nuclear program is aimed at meeting the country's electricity needs.
In 2006, Iran's nuclear program was directed from the IAEA Judicial Council to the UN Security Council.
The UN Security Council adopted another resolution, which provides for tougher sanctions against Iran. This is the fifth resolution adopted by the Security Council up to now. Three resolutions provide for imposing economic sanctions against Iran.
