Iranian, IAEA Experts to Find New Realms for Cooperation

Speaking to reporters after meeting IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano in Vienna, Salehi described his talks with Amano as positive, and said, "It was decided that the two sides' experts hold meetings and find a mechanism for further cooperation on Iran's nuclear issue so that the existing misunderstandings will be removed properly."

Stressing that Iran's nuclear case should have been closed long time ago, he said and main points of difference between Iran and the IAEA have been resolved.

"There are just a series of alleged studies. Mr. (Fereidoon) Abbasi (the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran) had held talks about them with Amano and we pursued the case through continuing the talks," he added.

Iran has on many occasions rejected the groundless allegations made against the Islamic Republic with regard to some alleged studies that the western countries, specially the US, claim Iran has done to make a military use of the nuclear technology.

Iran has demanded the IAEA to ask the US to present the genuine copy of such studies that the US alleges to have in its hand, but Washington has refrained from presenting the original copy of these alleged studies even to the IAEA and its own western allies.

Tehran says that based on a modality plan of cooperation agreed between Iran and the IAEA in 2007, the agency should announce Iran's nuclear case as closed.

Tehran has repeatedly said that it considers its nuclear case closed as it has come clean of IAEA's questions and suspicions about its past nuclear activities.

Iran says its nuclear program is a peaceful drive to produce electricity so that the world's fourth-largest crude exporter can sell more of its oil and gas abroad.

Tehran also stresses that the country is pursuing a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

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.

Analysts believe that the US is at loggerheads with Iran due mainly to the independent and home-grown nature of Tehran's nuclear technology, which gives the Islamic Republic the potential to turn into a world power and a role model for the other third-world countries.
