In a meeting with Swiss
Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey on the sidelines of World Economic Forum's
40th annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, Mottaki stressed Iran is ready for
interaction with the IAEA and countries which have nuclear fuel although Iran
naturally has the right to purchase the fuel.
"Iran's readiness to buy fuel shows its goodwill and it is an opportunity for building confidence between parties on nuclear swap cooperation."
The two sides then discussed regional issues.
Elsewhere, Mottaki held talks with French President Nicolas Sarkozy's advisor and the Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Riccardo Conti.
Also after a meeting with Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim, Mottaki told reporters, "new ideas have been discussed on providing unclear fuel for Tehran research reactor and we hope they will bear results."
"New ideas on providing Tehran reactor's fuel have been discussed following talks with Brazilian and French officials in Switzerland," Mottaki added.
Meanwhile in another session with the former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, the two sides discussed African issues, solutions for Afghanistan's problems as well as region, Iraq, Yemen and Middle East's matters.
