The Secretary of Iran`s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Hassan Rowhani will visit Moscow and Vienna next week for talks on Iran`s peaceful nuclear energy activities, an informed official at the Foreign Ministry announced in Tehran on Friday, IRNA reported.
The official told IRNA that Rowhani will first visit Vienna for talks with the Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei on Iran-IAEA nuclear cooperation.
He rejected speculations that Rowhani will be carrying a letter from Iran for the IAEA (over Iran`s signing the additional protocol of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty [NPT]) in his Vienna visit, and stressed that Tehran is currently implementing the final studies over the letter.
The official stressed that the letter will be submitted to IAEA by Iran`s representative to the agency within the coming days.
He further added that Rowhani will discuss Iran`s peaceful nuclear cooperation between Iran and Russia in his meetings with Russian officials later next week.
