Iran-Nuclear Program
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri said on Wednesday that with getting clean health bill from International Atomic Energy Agency, there remains no reason for the UN Security Council to discuss Iranian nuclear program.

Iran won victory over United States on November 15 when the UN nuclear agency verified civilian nature of Iranian nuclear program.

The two parties have also agreed to settle the remaining issues about nuclear program in one month.

"We think the conditions and the circumstances are quite favorable and we are getting ready to solve and settle the issue once and for all," Bagheri told reporters in Madrid.

Bagheri said the last report by IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei "showed that some of the problems that existed with respect to the nuclear problem had been solved."

He added that a new US intelligence assessment acknowledged that Iran has not weapons program.

"We hope there won't continue to be double standards at international level. The Iranian situation is entirely transparent. It has not changed in any way and is not going to change in the future," Bagheri said in reference to US activities to rally support for its anti-Iran conspiracy.

He warned, however, that a failure to reach a solution would play into the hands of "unilateralists and warmongers."
Bagheri is in Madrid to attend a meeting of the Alliance of Civilizations, a UN-backed initiative aimed to bring together the West and Muslim countries.
