TEHRAN (FNA) – Iran’s ambassador to Canberra reassured the new Australian government that his country’s nuclear program is completely peaceful and may not pose a threat to any other state.
Despite a last week report by the International Atomic Energy Agency Chief Mohamed ElBaradei which vindicated Iran’s claims about the peaceful nature of its nuclear programs and activities, representatives from the major powers of Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States are meeting in Washington to discuss the possibility of imposing further sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program.
The Iranian Ambassador to Australia Mahmoud Movahhedi dismissed US allegations that some alleged documents show Iran’s movements towards military nuclear goals, describing the documents as fake and forgeries.
Australia has expressed concern about Iran’s nuclear activities, but speaking through a translator, Movahhedi said he has no problem with the new Rudd Government.
He singled out Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s apology to Indigenous Australians, and said, “About the very remarkable apology that [was] made to the Aboriginals, we think he is very clever, efficient and with a very understanding view, and we can have the best relationship with the new Government of Australia.”
