IAEA Officials Holding Talks, Conducting Inspection in Iran: Eslami

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami said the International Atomic Energy Agency’s officials have visited Tehran to hold negotiations, conduct inspections and resolve uncertainties caused by a recent misinterpreted report.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a weekly cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday, Eslami said the IAEA officials are in Tehran.

The UN nuclear agency officials have been holding negotiations, making visits and conducting inspections since yesterday, he stated, adding that the ambiguities caused by the incorrect interpretation of an IAEA inspector in his recent report have been or are being resolved.

Eslami underlined that Iran maintains its relations with the IAEA within the framework of the Safeguards Agreement.

He also noted that Iran is working in interaction and coordination with the IAEA and keeps trying to prevent the creation of new ambiguities in the course of cooperation with the UN nuclear agency.

In comments earlier this month, Eslami said an IAEA inspector who had drawn a wrong conclusion of Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility realized his mistake after misinforming the UN nuclear agency.

Apart from the fact that the IAEA reports are not published immediately by the media about any country except Iran, the IAEA inspector had drawn an incorrect conclusion after visiting Fordow nuclear site and had instantly given that report to the UN nuclear agency, Eslami said on February 2.

“We provided explanations immediately, whose video is available and could be presented. Those explanations were circulated on the same day and the (International Atomic Energy) Agency’s inspector realized his mistake,” the Iranian official stated.
