TEHRAN (ISNA) - Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh said an IAEA high-ranking delegation would pay a visit to Iran on January 29.

Soltanieh told ISNA Tuesday that the delegation would be led by the IAEA Deputy Director General Herman Nackaerts, adding the visit aims at negotiating issues of common interests between Iran and the agency.

He stressed hailing the visit by Iran signals the country's interaction with the IAEA to remove ambiguities and hold a meeting under the framework of technical issues and based on the commitments of the two sides.

Iran envoy also called the action a "sign of transparency" in the country's nuclear program, Iran's cooperation with the IAEA and thwarting the enemy's plots.

The UN nuclear body has recently released a report accusing Iran of developing nuclear weapons.

The document echoed allegations by the United States, Zionist regime and their allies who accused Iran of pursuing military nuclear program. They also used this allegation as a pretext to sway the UN Security Council to impose four rounds of sanctions on Iran.

Iran refused the Western allegation, saying that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the IAEA it has the right to acquire and develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
