IAEA resumes nuclear talks on Iran

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Vienna, Sept 22, IRNA
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resumed talks on Iran's nuclear activities here Thursday.

The statement of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is expected to be read at the meeting and representatives of Russia, China, India and South Africa would deliver speeches in support of Iran's nuclear case and in opposition to escalating crises in this regard.

The 35-nation board of governors of the IAEA adjourned its session on Iran's nuclear case here on Wednesday just minutes after opening. The meeting was rescheduled for Thursday.

The IAEA resumed its debate under circumstances that the European Union had withdrawn its call for Iran's referral to the UN Security Council.

The EU called on IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei to prepare a new report on Iran's nuclear activities and set a deadline for the country.

The European Union on Tuesday published its proposed draft resolution against Iran among the member states of IAEA board of governors which aroused opposition of Russia, China, India and member states of the Non-Aligned Movement.
