ElBaradei’s report indicates Iran-IAEA good cooperation: Elham

607314-52-27.jpg(IRNA) The latest report of the United Nations nuclear watchdog about Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities indicated Tehran’s good cooperation with the agency, government spokesman, Gholam-Hossein Elham said on Saturday. Speaking to reporters, Elham said the report also made it clear that Iran had made its nuclear activities under full supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The IAEA Director-General Mohamed ElBaradei presented his latest assessment about Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities to the agency’s 35-member Board of Governors on May 26.

The report acknowledged that as a signatory to the
Non-Proliferation Treaty, Iran has remained committed to the NPT regulations and other international treaties and had full cooperation with the UN nuclear watchdog.

It also confirmed that the IAEA was given the permission to inspect Iran’s all nuclear facilities and sites and that Tehran had no diversion in its nuclear activities.

Iran has removed ambiguities over the six topics mentioned in the Work Plan and continued its nuclear activities “under Agency containment and surveillance,” the report stressed.

Noting that the IAEA was under tight pressures by the US officials, Elham said, “Iran’s nuclear issue is on its routine course now and the government believes that it is over.

The spokesman added that imposing pressures on the IAEA by US officials “is nothing new.”
He said Iran was willing to witness a day when the IAEA, as a legal and international body in charge of the nuclear activities of other countries, would fulfill its duties “independently and far from big powers’ influence.”
