IAEA Chief Confirms Invitation to Iran

Pointing to his meeting with Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Fereidoon Abbasi in Vienna earlier this week, Amano said, "Dr. Abbassi invited me to Tehran."

"I will consider visiting Tehran at an appropriate time but a constructive concrete result is needed," he stated.

As regards his meeting with Abbasi, the IAEA chief noted, "We agreed to continue the dialogue."

On Wednesday, Iran's Residing Representative at the IAEA Ali Asqar Soltaniyeh announced that his office is tasked with taking the preparatory measures for the upcoming visit to Iran by the UN nuclear watchdog chief.

Speaking to FNA about the recent visit to Vienna Fereidoon Abbasi, Soltaniyeh stated during the meeting the AEOI chief had invited the IAEA director-general to visit Iran's nuclear sites and facilities.

"And it has been agreed that our country's mission in Vienna adopt the preparatory works and planning for the visit," Soltaniyeh added.

Abbasi and Amano met in Vienna on Tuesday on the sidelines of a five-day IAEA nuclear safety conference.

Abbasi said he had even invited Amano to visit any nuclear site he wants all throughout Iran.

"I invited Mr. Amano to come to visit anywhere they like in all our nuclear installations," Reuters reported.

He also said that he had held "very good" and "transparent" talks with Amano.

The US and its western allies allege that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program while they have never presented corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations against the Islamic Republic.

Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.

Tehran has dismissed West's demands as politically tainted and illogical, stressing that sanctions and pressures merely consolidate Iranians' national resolve to continue the path.
