IAEO works with Iranian nuclear experts to set agenda for upcoming nuclear talks: IAEO spokesman

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, June 8, IRNA -- Irans Atomic Energy Organization and Iranian nuclear experts are due to hold a joint meeting aimed to set the agenda for the next round of nuclear talks slated for June 16-20 in Vienna, said IAEO spokesman, Behrouz Kamalvandi on Sunday.

Kamalvandi said that the national atomic energy agency will hold consultations with Iranian experts about outcome of recent expert level talks between Iran and the P5+1.

He said the Iranian experts are going to present a report on their recent talks with nuclear experts from the six world nations which he said were centered on Arak heavy water plant, the amount of enrichment and some other issues.

After the experts report is read, the participants will work together to set the agenda for the fifth round of talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China – plus Germany to bring an end to a decade-old nuclear dispute, according to the spokesman.

He predicted that Vienna talks will be tough and serious since he believed the other side makes every effort not to make any concessions.

On Irans cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, Kamalvandi said, We are gradually moving towards reducing ambiguities. However he noted that removal of ambiguities will take time as they have been compiled over years.

He said that cooperation with the IAEA helped defuse propaganda campaign against Iran by the western governments over the peaceful nuclear program.
