AEOI Chief: Iran, IAEA Agree to Settle All Past Issues with Respect to Redlines
“All past issues will be resolved completely after Iran and the Agency adopt some measures,” Salehi told reporters in Vienna on Tuesday after signing an agreement called the Iran-IAEA Cooperation ‘Roadmap’.
He said that all agreements, including the measures decided for Parchin military site, will be implemented with full respect to Iran’s redlines.
Iran had earlier announced that inspection of the country’s military sites are one of its redlines.
“I hope that a new chapter in relations and cooperation between Iran and the IAEA will start after the settlement of the past issues,” Salehi added.
Salehi made the remarks in Vienna on Tuesday, just a short time after diplomats acknowledged a sum-up agreement had been made between world powers and Iran.
Head of the International Atomic Energy Agency Yukiya Amano and Salehi signed a roadmap of cooperation earlier today.
Amano, for his part, said the roadmap calls for his agency, with Iran’s cooperation, to make an assessment of issues relating to what is called as possible military dimensions of the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program by the end of 2015.
“This is a significant step forward toward clarifying outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program,” Amano said.
The remarks came as Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) are about to declare a sum-up agreement after years of talks.
