UN welcomed Iran's invitation of Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano to inspect the country's nuclear installations, UN Under-Secretary-General for Disarmament Affairs Sergio de Queiroz Duarte said, IRNA reported.
Duarte added that any measure which helps improve confidence in the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear activities would be appreciated.
He also recalled the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon believes that any measure in the field could help the international community build further confidence in the issue.
