Deputies of IAEA director general due in Tehran
Deputies of Yukiya Amano, the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), are due in the Iranian capital, Tehran, to discuss ways of sorting out issues pertaining to Iran’s nuclear program.
Amano’s deputies are scheduled to arrive Sunday night to settle issues related to the so-called possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program and “alleged studies,” IRNA reported.
A source close to the Iranian nuclear negotiating team told reporters on Sunday that although the IAEA has so far failed to present reliable documents to prove its claims on Iran’s nuclear work, Tehran is ready to help the agency settle the PMD issue within the framework of its considerations.
“To us, it is not a difficult issue because it has no ambiguity and we have no concern in this regard,” the source said, adding, however, that such baseless claims should not remain unresolved.
The IAEA officials’ trip comes a few days after Amano paid a visit to Iran and held talks with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani.
