IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Vienna, June 11, IRNA – Iran’s Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency Ali-Asghar Soltanieh said here Thursday that the construction of the Arak reactor is currently underway successfully.

Soltanieh made the remarks in response to questions about the refusal by Iran to accept inspection of its Arak reactor.

The Iranian diplomat expressed hope that the reactor would be completed as soon as possible.

“The IAEA secretary-general has repeatedly announced that no evidence had been found on Iran’s diversion from peaceful nuclear activities,” he said.

“Mohamed ElBaradei has released two reports confirming that all nuclear issues have been settled,” he added.
