IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Nov. 29, IRNA -- Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said on Sunday that alleged possible military dimension of Iranian nuclear program is invalid.

Speaking in a press conference after a meeting with the Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias, Zarif said that Iranian nuclear program had never possible military dimension and the allegation is invalid.

'We have reached an agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to survey and close the file once for good and the agency posed some questions respectively and Iran answered them in accordance with the roadmap,' said Zarif.

He added that Iran is waiting for IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano's Iran report and final resolution the IAEA board of governors is expected to pass.

Zarif said that the outstanding issue is mistakenly referred to as the PMD, because Iran's nuclear program had never military dimension.
