TEHRAN (ISNA) - The IAEA experts would not visit Iranian nuclear installations, said Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on Monday.

Iran has decided to improve regional organizations because of lever of pressure of Arrogant powers in international organizations, he said on the sidelines of Iran-Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) conference in Tehran.

Also regarding Iran-Europe relations on economic fields, he said, "Friendly relations with regional countries and better ties with Europe is our priority."

He reiterated that no long-term pause should be made in Iran-Europe relations.

"We advise European countries not to lose the chance of better relations with Iran. We have put better ties with Europe on our agenda, but we have not got appropriate response yet."

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) experts have arrived in Tehran Monday for further talks. The trip is in line with agreements made during the first round of the travel, he said.

Salehi also rejected reports on Oman's mediation between Iran and the U.S. "Iran and Oman enjoy unique relations. Oman mediated for release of some people who had stepped in Iran illegally, of course there were some legal issues, Salehi noted.
