Iran will work with IAEA to address unresolved worries


(MENAFN) Iran's foreign minister states the Islamic Republic will cooperate with the UN atomic regulator to resolve the remaining doubts regarding its atomic activity as long as the Agency's approach to the country is severely technical.

The remarks were made by Hossein Amir Abdollahian in a special meeting with the al-Monitor news website, which was issued on Monday.

Rafael Grossi, the manager general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has called for Iran to give a clarification for what he believes are "traces of uranium" found at locations "that were never reported as nuclear-related sites" by the Islamic Republic.

The Islamic Republic dismisses the reported worries, stating that its atomic energy program has experienced the broadest reviews regime in the Agency's history.

The IAEA "has to behave and act technically" rather than politically, Amir Abdollahian stated in his interview, saying that "these seeming unfounded claims against Iran, that have been put on the agenda of the Agency (IAEA) need to be eliminated first."

The senior diplomat added, "So, if the Agency chooses to, instead, focus on just the technical concerns, then we will surely attempt to strengthen and add to our collaboration."
