Tehran, Feb 25, IRNA – Iran’s Representative in the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Reza Najafi said the watchdog’s technical meeting on Wednesday evening approved the transparent nature of Iran’s nuclear program.

He said the meeting was “useful”.

According to the Iranian official, the meeting focused solely on technical issues and dedicated its time to exploring the recent report of the organization’s chairman.

Najafi said the meeting acknowledged that the whole of Iran’s nuclear program including installations, equipment and material were totally monitored by the IAEA experts.

He said this proved Iran’s transparency in its nuclear activities.

The Iranian official further pointed out that the meeting also reviewed the recent meeting between the IAEA Director General Yukia Amano and Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif which took place at the sideline of a security conference in Munich recently.

Najafi said the meeting stressed the need for continuation of nuclear talks between Iran and the 5+1 until the ultimate settlement of the issue.
