ran has warned against efforts to undermine the country’s interactions with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), insisting that Tehran will continue to collaborate with the UN nuclear agency.
The Islamic Republic has always been committed to international regulations and cooperated with the IAEA, Iran’s Ambassador to the IAEA, Ali Asghar Soltanieh said.
He pointed to a recent visit by a high-ranking IAEA delegation to Tehran, headed by the agency’s Deputy Director General Herman Nackaerts, and stated that two rounds of talks indicated Iran’s goodwill.
The envoy also noted that Iran and the IAEA agreed to hold further negotiations to set a framework for bolstering bilateral cooperation.
Any inspection of Iran’s nuclear facilities requires a legal framework and consideration, which should be agreed by the two sides, Soltanieh said.
Iran’s ambassador to IAEA has expressed Tehran’s readiness to continue cooperative negotiations with the nuclear body.
“Our position is that we are going to continue the talks for cooperation with the agency and we hope that this process will be successfully going on,” Ali Asghar Soltanieh said.
“We try to be cooperative,” Soltanieh added. “We are dealing with the questions and we are trying to remove ambiguities.”
