IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Vienna, June 21, IRNA -- Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Fereydoun Abbasi conferred with the Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Yukiya Amano on Tuesday on the sidelines of IAEA Conference on Nuclear Safety.

Talking to IRNA at the end of the meeting, he said that he declared Iran’s stance to Amano during the meeting which he described as fruitful.

“There was no ambiguous point in Iranian nuclear program and the parties have confidence in each other. Both Iran and the IAEA have resolve to remove the problems,” he said.

The five-day Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Safety, convened by the IAEA in Vienna, commenced on Monday, 20 June 2011.

In the wake of 11 March 2011 radioactive leaks at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in Japan that was caused by the massive Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, the conference was called to identify the lessons learned from the accident and to strengthen nuclear safety throughout the world.

In many countries, the accident and its aftermath have shaken public confidence in the safety of nuclear power plants.
