Deputy FM: Iran Prepared to Respond All IAEA’s Questions
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Iran’s deputy foreign minister and one of the country’s nuclear negotiators announced that Tehran has offered new proposals over the country’s nuclear issue and is ready to remove ambiguities about the program.
Speaking on Monday evening, Seyed Abbas Araqchi said he held very positive and constructive talks with the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukiya Amano, in Vienna.
He added that in his talks with Amano, he gave a detailed explanation about Iran’s new approach.
Iran also expressed its readiness to “respond to all IAEA questions and ambiguities in a short period of time”, Araqchi stated.
“In talks with Amano, it has also been emphasized that the Islamic Republic of Iran is keen to improve its cooperation with the agency,” the Iranian official stated.
Araqchi is Iran’s key negotiator in nuclear negotiations with the six world powers (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany, also known as Group 5+1) and analysts say his meeting with Amano will positively affect Iran’s negotiations with the G5+1.
The Iranian and IAEA delegations ended the first day of the negotiations on Monday and are set to resume a second day of talks.
