Head of the Iran's Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO) Reza Aqazadeh said here Thursday that Iran's general policies is not to sever ties with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

A revising committee has been formed under supervision of Supreme National Security Council to study the prospects of cooperation with IAEA, he said.

The revising committee is to draw up a time table for inspections to be conducted by IAEA inspectors from Iran's nuclear sites, he said.

Iran's nuclear activities are of peaceful nature and are within NPT, he underlined.

On anti-Iranian UNSC Resolution 1737, he said, "We believe that negotiations would be the final solution to Iran's nuclear standoff.

"Since we are an independent nation, the sanctions will leave no impact on our development."

On inspections on an academic research center conducted by IAEA inspectors in Iran, he said the results would be announced within two or three months.
