Iran, IAEA continue interaction despite standing differences on technical issues: Iranian envoy

Iran’s representative to the international organizations in Vienna says the country’s interaction with the UN nuclear watchdog will continue despite differences on technical issues. 

“Despite our [standing] technical differences with the [International Atomic Energy] Agency (IAEA), interaction between the two sides continue in this area with the aim of final resolution of the issues,” Mohammad Reza Ghaebi said on Wednesday.

He, therefore, urged IAEA member states against issuing “hasty or politically-motivated” remarks concerning the status of cooperation between the Islamic Republic and the nuclear agency.

The official was apparently referring to the United States and its Western allies’ habit of coming up with unfounded accusations concerning the quality of the bilateral cooperation. Tehran routinely refutes the allegations, citing technical facts to the contrary and reasserting its constant intention of working transparently with the international body.
