IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 14, IRNA -- Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Saturday International Atomic Energy Agency’s inspectors will visit Iran probably within a month.

He told IRNA, while participating in a ceremony in Sharif University commemorating Martyr Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, Iranian nuclear scientist was assassinated by terrorist groups in Tehran on Wednesday.

Mehmanparast said Iran voluntarily invited IAEA inspectors and its deputy Director General to come and visit Iranian nuclear installations and apparatus before any resolutions by IAEA governing council.

He said the current cooperation between Iran and IAEA is at the 'highest level' comparing to relations with other countries.

“High number of the IAEA inspections to Iran’s nuclear installations proves Iran’s full commitment to the IAEA, consequently is expecting more cooperation from the IAEA,“ Foreign Ministry Spokesman added.

Mehmanparast said the invitation shows Iran’s transparent nuclear activities and good will in its commitments.

He finally said Iran is serious to keep its legal nuclear rights and will not stop struggles to use all these rights to develop country for necessary peaceful goals.
