Certain words in IAEA’s Iran report used to mystify media atmosphere

Politics – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said that the recent report issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Iran’s peaceful nuclear program has purposefully used some stereotype words to create a mysterious atmosphere in the media about Iran’s nuclear activities.

“Certain phrases in the IAEA’s recent report on Iran’s nuclear activities are the same stereotype phrases which have been mentioned before to mystify the media atmosphere,” Larijani said, addressing the Iranian parliamentarians in today’s open session in Tehran.

He reminded Tehran’s good cooperation with the IAEA to remove the possible ambiguities about its nuclear program, and said, “Iran has always supported constructive talks with the Agency, and in recent months cooperated with the IAEA beyond the normal terms (and its undertakings) which shows that Iran has no secret in its nuclear affairs.”

In relevant remarks on Thursday, Iran’s residing Representative at the International Atomic Energy Agency Ali Asqar Soltaniyeh said the recent report released by the IAEA chief has confirmed non-diversion of Iran’s civilian nuclear activities after carrying out a record number of inspections in Iran.

The IAEA had been constantly inspecting Iran’s nuclear facilities for ten years, and that the main message of the UN agency’s report was that Iran had not deviated from civilian to military purposes in its nuclear energy program, Soltaniyeh said.

The IAEA’s report said that the enrichment of 20-percent uranium is done merely to supply fuel for Tehran Research Reactor to produce radio-medicine for hospitals, the Iranian diplomat noted.

He once again expressed Iran’s commitment to resolving issues pertaining to its nuclear energy program with the UN agency.
