Iran submits nuclear declarations to IAEA

Vienna, May 22, IRNA -- The Islamic Republic of Iran has submitted the the declarations of its nuclear programs to the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said Iran's Ambassador to the UN's nuclear watchdog Pirooz Hosseini here Saturday.

Speaking to IRNA, Hosseini underlined "We have submitted the declarations under Article 2 of the Additional Protocol to Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) as a confidence-building measure and in line with an understanding between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the UN nuclear watchdog.

Hosseini stressed as per the request of the IAEA's Director General Mohamed El-Baradei during his recent visit to Tehran, Iran has submitted the declarations to the UN earlier than the due time.

On the contents of the declarations, he said the documents include reports on (Iran's) nuclear researches and activities.

Iran's ambassador to the UN nuclear watchdog rejected the news aired by some media saying Iran requires more time to fully complete its atomic report, saying, "Reports such as these are plain propaganda. Notwithstanding such false reports, Iran continues its effective and constructive cooperation with the IAEA."
