Azerbaijan, Baku, May 1 / Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Islamic Republic of Iran has the right for nuclear enrichment and it will continue to do so for peaceful purposes, Iran's Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency Ali Asqar Soltaniyeh told Trend in an interview.
Soltaniyeh underscored that all of Iran's nuclear activity is under supervision of IAEA.
"We carry out all negotiations within the IAEA framework, which means Iran showcases its good will and political willingness," Soltaniyeh said.
Last Friday,Soltanieh announced that the new round of nuclear talks between Tehran and the IAEA would be held in Vienna on May 13 and 14.
Speaking about the "Iran-Six powers" talks regarding Islamic Republic's nuclear program, Soltaniyeh noted that those are different from the talks Islamic Republic holds with IAEA.
"The 5+1 talks is a big discussion, where global problems and regional question are discussed," Soltaniyeh said. "Lots of questions are being discussed there, while with IAEA the issues stay within the Agency's framework, we do not go beyond it".
Iran and the P5+1 (Britain, France, Russia, China and the United States plus Germany) wrapped up the latest round of their negotiations on April 14 in the Turkish city of Istanbul, and both sides hailed the multifaceted talks as constructive.
Iraq will host the next round of the talks on May 23.
