Iran to continue cooperation with IAEA till remaining issues are resolved: Iranian pokesman

Vienna, Sept 17, IRNA -- The spokesman of the Iranian delegation to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors in Vienna, Hossein Moussavian, on Friday stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue its cooperation with the IAEA until all remaining issues are resolved by November.

On the US position on Iran's nuclear activities, he told reporters that the Americans had, from the very beginning, been looking for avenues to send Iran's case to the UN Security Council during IAEA meetings.

Again, they have failed in this meeting to set October 31 as the deadline for Iran to dispel all doubts regarding its nuclear activities, he added.

On Iran's reaction towards the position taken by the European trio -- France, Germany, England -- in the draft resolution, Moussavian said: "We are not fully satisfied with the position of the European trio. We believe the Europeans have not fulfilled their commitments to Iran."

The Islamic Republic of Iran, since October, has been actively cooperating and fulfilling all its commitments, he said, adding that in return Tehran expected that the European countries would also fulfill their commitments, but have failed in this regard.

"I believe that they have shown weakness in fulfilling their commitments," he added.

"We have more comprehensive and broader issues to discuss with the three European countries, including regional security and all-out cooperation with the EU. I believe that from now on these will take center stage in our negotiations with the three European states," Moussavian said.
