Rowhani told a group of Iranian and foreign reporters that the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohammed ElBaradei's recent report shows Iran's nuclear case is nearing its closure and no other point of significance, except certain technical and minor issues remain.
Rowhani said majority of the issues of importance to the IAEA have been totally or partially resolved.
He said the IAEA has announced that with careful and expert study on the two remaining key and important issues, it would be able to be confident of Iran's nuclear program.
He went on to say that the IAEA report has made good progress with regards to the contaminated parts but the issue needs further investigation.
As far as P2 is concerned, the IAEA report admits that Iran has had very suitable cooperation and addressed all relevant questions, said Rowhani, adding that the report, however adds that since outcome of samples taken in the P2 workshop are not yet available and certain information have yet to be be made available to the Agency the issue needs further investigation.
Rowhani said the Tuesday night report of the IAEA shows that Iran's nuclear case is almost closed and there is no other important issue.
He said the report has thanked Iran for being fully cooperative with the Agency.
Rowhani said the report shows Iran's activities have been peaceful and the country has not diverted from the right path.
Rowhani quoted ElBaradei as saying in Slovakia on Tuesday night that the IAEA has not yet found any evidence and proof to substantiate that Iran's nuclear activities have been illegal or non-peaceful.
He said Iran has announced from the beginning that the more inspections are carried out, the more confident the world will become that Iran's activities are legal and peaceful.
