TEHRAN (ISNA) - Iranian envoy to the IAEA Ali Asghar Soltanieh said visiting Parchin nuclear site needs agreement under a framework.

"Implementing the IAEA requests to answer some questions, remove ambiguities and visit Parchin nuclear site needs agreement under a framework which includes all considerations of both sides," he told ISNA.

He also called for western countries to avoid making any comment which damages the climate of cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

The IAEA should be allowed to do its activities impartially and without political motives, since the Islamic Republic of Iran plans to continue talks to resolve issues intended by the agency.

Referring to the IAEA Director General's report on Iran, Soltanieh said, "The report reiterates that all of Iran's activities specially nuclear enrichment issue are under the observation of the agency completely."

The report is a document confirming Iran's scientific and technological capabilities and that it is taking steps forward in line with peaceful purposes, he added.

Soltanieh added the recent report released by the IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano has got less pages comparing to the last one and the report speaks of routine and usual inspections of the inspectors to 15 nuclear site.

A group of the IAEA inspectors arrived in Tehran last Monday and they held talks with Iranian officials.

Iran says it is enriching uranium only as fuel for nuclear power plants, not atomic weapons and it has refused to curb the peaceful nuclear activity.
