Iran expects Security Council to wait for IAEA report

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 28, IRNA
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki Monday advised the UN Security Council to wait until Director-General of International Atomic Energy Agency presents his report to the Board of Governors in February.

Talking to domestic and foreign reporters, he said that the Security Council must heed the IAEA report to be released in February which will oblige the Security Council to declare its two former resolutions null and void.

Challenging illegitimacy of passing resolution against Iran when Iran has proved civilian nature of national nuclear program, Mottaki said that the Security Council must send Iranian file back to the UN specialized agency.

Asked about what Iran's reaction would be in case of issuance of a new resolution, he said, "We hope such an action not to happen.

Otherwise, Tehran would show a serious and logical reaction which will be declared later."
