IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Vienna, June 7, IRNA -- Iran's envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) advised IAEA Director General Yukio Amano about fulfillment of his agency's pledges.

Speaking exclusively to IRNA, Ali-Asghar Soltaniyeh, Iran's Permanent Representative to the IAEA said today is time for closing Iran's nuclear case 'for good'.

Referring to the first day of the ongoing IAEA Board of Governors meeting in Vienna, Soltaniyeh said Amano in the meeting pointed to his correspondence with Head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO) Fereydoun Abbasi.

Amano in his speech said he had called on Iran to cooperate and hold talks with IAEA member states on various issues, noted Soltaniyeh.

Soltaniyeh said Abbasi's letter to the IAEA chief has been very constructive and promising.

Abbasi in his response to Amano reviewed the agreements and modalities between Iran and the IAEA, Soltaniyeh said, adding; '…and reiterated that Tehran has done all of them completely.'

'Now, the ball is in IAEA's court and it is responsible for taking measures according to the agreements and modalities,' said Soltaniyeh.

He stressed that the Islamic Republic always declares that its nuclear activities are 'peaceful' and under the supervision of the IAEA.

The envoy further reiterated that Iran is 'against' any nuclear weapons.
