Iran-Bahrain-Mottaki
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Wednesday that it is expected that Iran's nuclear dossier would be solved within one or two months.

Speaking to reporters at a joint press conference with his Bahraini counterpart Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, he said Iran has fully cooperated with IAEA which resulted in IAEA admitting in a report that Iran has not deviated from its peaceful program.

On latest report issued by the US intelligence society, he said in recent months two significant developments have occurred proving peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program.

Reports on Iran's cooperation with IAEA indicated that the country has adopted a transparent strategy on peaceful nuclear programs, he said.

Given continued cooperation with IAEA, he said it is expected that Iran's cooperation with IAEA will be supported by all countries and its dossier will be closed within coming one or two months.

"We are expecting a rational and logical approach in dealing with our nuclear dossier," Mottaki said.

Another development was the report issued by the US intelligence society which explicitly declared that Iran does not pursue proliferation of nuclear weapons, he underlined.

Reports issued by IAEA and US intelligence society has provided a suitable opportunity mainly for the US to courageously confess to peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear drive and let the dossier return to IAEA.
