IAEA report to back up Iran's position in nuclear row: German daily
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Berlin, Aug 30, IRNA
The upcoming International Atomic Energy Agency's report on Iran, scheduled to be released on September 3, will back up Tehran's position in the ongoing nuclear dispute, saying Iran has not violated any major regulations of the Vienna-based UN nuclear watchdog group, the Handelsblatt newspaper reported Tuesday.
The paper cited high-ranking diplomatic circles as saying that the report is less critical of Iran's nuclear efforts than what European countries had hoped for.
It added that there was no proof that Iran had in any way breached IAEA regulations.
The news report concluded by saying since there has been no proof that Tehran has violated any of its nuclear obligations, it will be difficult to convince the IAEA Board of Governors to send Iran's file for possible sanctions to the UN Security Council.
