Amano: IAEA ready to reach agreement with Iran on new modality
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Vienna, Nov 29, IRNA -- IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said on Thursday that IAEA expects to reach an agreement with the Islamic Republic of Iran on the new modality plan proposed by the country to help resolve nuclear dispute.
He made the remarks during an IAEA Board of Governors meeting in Vienna on Thursday.
IAEA is fully determined to hold dialogue with Iran as grounds for resolving the issue through diplomatic means are well prepared, he said.
All should seize the opportunity and help resolve the issue through diplomatic means, he said.
Next round of talks between Iran and IAEA will be held on December 13 in Tehran, Amano said.
It is necessary to mention that all should try to help in drawing up a new modality plan to help resolve nuclear issue between Iran and IEAE.
The Islamic Republic of Iran and IAEA have successfully resolved their previous disputes.
Iran believes that its modality plan proposed in the year 2007 is regarded as a good pattern for drawing up the new modality plan.
Tehran believes that the proposed modality should be pursued step by step.
Iran also believes that there should be limits to the questions posed by the IAEA and they should agree not to pose any new question upon Iran's response.
IAEA should explicitly announce that what incentive or privileges they will give Iran following the country's cooperation.
Next issue would be about Parchin where IAEA is willing to inspect. IAEA inspectors have inspected the site but since Parchin is not a nuclear facility, Iran cannot accept their request for keeping its door open for ever.
Based on a proposal made by Moscow Iran will answer to all questions regarding military activities on condition that the western states lift all types of sanctions against the country.
In fact Moscow's proposal urges the G5+1 to give move incentives to Iran upon Iran's cooperation.
The last meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors in the year 2012 kicked off in Vienna on Thursday.
Amano issued a 13 page document on Iran's peaceful nuclear activities to IAEA Board of Governor ten days ago.
In the report Amano once again underlined that Tehran is committed to resolving its dispute with IEAE.
The last round of talks between Iran and IAEA was held on August 24.
