Iran: IAEA report shows nuclear work peaceful
Adjust font size:

Iranian Ambassador to IAEA Ali Asghar Soltanieh said in Vienna on Tuesday the report of the IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei approved that all atomic programs of Iran are for peaceful use and no nuclear-related military programs were found.

He reaffirmed that Iran had clarified all unresolved problems, saying that "we have made necessary explanations" to all questions and Iran would continue "cooperating with IAEA".

However, some media pointed out that ElBaradei's latest report, which was circulated Monday evening to the UN Security Council and the IAEA Board of Governors still showed serious concern on the nuclear programs of Iran.

Therefore, the agency would require "substantive explanations" from Iran to support its statements on the alleged studies and other information with a possible military dimension.

Some media even said the report mentioned Iran's uranium enrichment facilities were still on increase.

So far the report has not been published. However, according to media in Vienna, this draft report was a development on the report which was published on February 22 and said Iran did not offer enough explanation on some problems, especially those ranged over high explosives testing and the missile re-entry vehicle project as well as uranium-related components.

Meanwhile, some media said Iran had so far 3,500 uranium enrichment centrifuges installed at its Natanz nuclear facility and this number would increase to about 6,000 by the end of this summer.

On the other hand, Iran emphasized repeatedly that its nuclear researches were only for peaceful purpose. However, western countries especially the US insisted suspecting on Iran's nuclear-related programs.

The UN Security Council has imposed three times tough sanctions on Iran for its on-going uranium enrichment programs.

This draft report from ElBaradei will be discussed on the IAEA Board of Governors Meeting, which would be held in Vienna from June 2 to June 6.
