The Non-Aligned Movement is set to present the IAEA Board of Governors a declaration in support of Iran’s nuclear program, a senior Iranian official says.
“The ambassadors of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) reached a consensus to prepare a declaration in favor of Iran to be read out in the IAEA Board of Governor’s March meeting,” Iran’s Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Ali-Asghar Soltanieh, told IRNA following a NAM meeting in Vienna on Thursday.
“Iran’s logical and technical proposal, offered in the Vienna meeting in October, is still on the table,” he said.
In an October meeting in Geneva, Iran offered the major powers to send its domestically produced low enriched uranium abroad and receive refined fuel in return for Tehran research reactor that produces medical isotopes for cancer patients.
Iran deems its offer to be a test for the industrial states so that they might prove their goodwill and shift from defiance to interaction in the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Soltanieh maintained.
Numerous members of the Non-Aligned Movement have endorsed Iran’s nuclear program.
