President Rouhani made the remarks in a meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano here on Sunday.
“In the recent 12 years, the IAEA has regularly investigated Iran’s nuclear facilities and has frequently reported that Iran’s atomic program has not deviated from its peaceful path,” Dr.Rouhani asserted.
President expressed hopes that the Agency “would impress a good name for itself as an impartial entity through recognizing the rights of countries to use peaceful nuclear energy and through making clear baseless allegations mounted against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program.”
President Rouhani said that the Islamic Republic of Iran had always acted according to international frameworks and regulations in a technical transparent cooperation with the IAEA. “Iran needs modern technologies including nuclear technology in its path to development, and the decision made by the nation and Parliament will be an impetus for government to move toward using this technology in electricity, medicine, agriculture and industry sections,” President Rouhani said.
President pointed that Tehran is serious in negotiations with the P5+1 and the International Atomic Energy Agency and he added that we does not want anything more than our right; including enrichment for peaceful purposes.
Iran provided the necessary ground for monitoring its peaceful nuclear activities, said that Iran only accept the IAEA legal supervision within the framework of the NPT and IAEA safeguards; he added that any extra regulation is a novelty that will be detrimental to all developing countries.
He emphasized that a comprehensive plan would secure a win-win situation for both sides and contributes to peace and security in the world and the region and to Iran’s effective integration to international community.
He pointed to the history of Iran’s cooperation with the IAEA since 2002. “I do believe that if there is a strong will seeking accord in nuclear issue, the result would be achieved in course of less than a year, and Iran is resolved to hammer out a deal in shortest possible time,” said president.
President said the negotiations between Iran and the G5+1 will finally lead to an agreement since agreement and a win-win game will serve the interests of all."
President Rouhani urged the IAEA director general to continue negotiations with Iranian officials and regularly report on the ‘progressive nature’ of the cooperation over time.
“Iran’s missile capabilities are not negotiable, in any level and under no circumstances,” Dr. Rouhani emphasized.
Yukia Amano said that Iran’s nuclear issue was highly important for the Agency. “Since assuming the leadership in the IAEA, I have been working to act fairly and to apply the rules equally for all countries,” he added, “Iran and the IAEA negotiations have been progressive and completely positive in the recent past year.”
Amano expressed hopes that the agreement signed with Iran would provide frameworks for resolving ambiguities in the past and present. “The IAEA appreciates Iran’s transparency in its nuclear issue and will try to use the opportunity to develop a good model of cooperation,” he added.
Amano, however, said that he was not satisfied with the length of the negotiations with 5+1 states.
