IAEA chief asked to act immediately

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Aug 4, IRNA
An Iranian official called on the UN nuclear watchdog to probe into the unsealing of Isfahan Uranium Conversion Facility and issue order for immediate action.

The call was made by Head of the Publicity and Information Dissemination Committee of the Supreme National Security
Council (SNSC) Ali Aghamohammadi to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Chief Mohammad ElBaradei.

He told IRNA that previously IAEA acted very rapidly with respect to unsealing but it seems that at this stage there is some procrastination.

Aqamohammadi further said that Iran has responded to the letter of the foreign ministers of France, Germany and Britain.

"We have explained in this letter that we have accepted suspension (of uranium enrichment) voluntarily while according to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) there is no need for discussion and garnering others' consent to implement this inalienable right of ours," he said.
