Tehran, Nov 30, IRNA
IAEA's Representative to Iran Christer Viktorsson said on Sunday that the Islamic Republic of Iran is now fully cooperating with IAEA to maintain safety of Bushehr nuclear power plant.
He made the remark in his address to the First International Seminar on Nuclear Power Plant, Environment and Sustainable Development in Tehran on Sunday.
Cooperation between IAEA and Iran on the security and safety of Bushehr nuclear power plant is in line with existing protocols and agreements, he said.
Technical points should be observed in the construction of nuclear power plants, he said, adding that there are lots of countries in Asia seeking to benefit from nuclear energy to meet their domestic needs.
Many Asian countries mainly in Southeast Asia as well as in the Middle East region call for replacement of fossil fuel with nuclear energy and seek to win support of IAEA to this effect, he said.
IAEA renders any services to meet safety demands during setting up of new nuclear power plants, he said.
Iran has observed all safety requirements for construction of Bushehr nuclear power plant, he said.
