FM: Iran's cooperation with IAEA sincere, serious

Tehran, Sept 14, IRNA - Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Sunday that Iran continues its sincere and serious cooperation with IAEA.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of government weekly session, Mottaki said he has no information on details of the new report which is to be presented by IAEA Chief Mohamed ElBaradei on the country's nuclear activities.

Iran's cooperation with IAEA is in line with the governing rules and regulations of the agency, he said.

Implementation of Modality Plan is regarded as the peak of such cooperation, he pointed out.

Secretary of Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili and representative of the G+5 Javier Solana are now continuing constructive talks, Mottaki said.

On his recent visit to Moscow, he said the aim of such visit was to review developments in Georgia and its consequences.

Iran is to help restore stability and security to the region through touring the countries in the region, Mottaki said.

On Bushehr nuclear plant, he said the Russian contractor once again said that it is committed to commission the plant in due course.

On delay for issuance of visa to Iranian delegation who is to attend at UN general assembly, he said it is expected the relative visas would be issued in coming days although the US officials created obstacles in issuing visas during the last visit of the Iranian delegation.

During his stay in New York, the Iranian president is to confer with his counterparts along with Iranian nationals residing in the US.

IAEA rejects alleged missing nuclear material in Iran

Tehran, Sept 14, IRNA - IAEA's spokesperson Melissa Fleming said on Sunday that all enriched uranium in Isfahan nuclear installations is under the control and supervision of IAEA and nothing is missing.

In a statement issued on Sunday, Fleming declared that Natanz nuclear power plant is under the supervision and control of IAEA inspectors. The inspectors have confirmed that there is no deviation from peaceful operations at the site.

In response to a fabricated article in the Daily Telegraph headlined 'Iran renews nuclear weapons development' by Con Coughlin and Tim Butcher, Fleming issued a statement describing the article as invalid and completely fabricated.

The IAEA statement also confirms that IAEA Chief Mohamed ElBaradei's report on Iran will show that all nuclear material at Isfahan Uranium Convention Facility remains under IAEA control and surveillance and there is no evidence of missing nuclear material from the site.

Uranium is not enriched at Isfahan as claimed by Telegraph but the fuel enrichment plant in Natanz which is under supervision of IAEA and there is no report on its deviation, Fleming said.

In its fabricated report, the daily said that by conducting a careful study of the amount of material stored at Isfahan, and the amount of 'yellow cake' known to have been processed at the plant, nuclear experts believe between 50 to 60 tons of uranium has disappeared.

IAEA's statement has been placed on its site but the western media did not report it.
