Iran insists all IAEA nuclear questions answered

IRAN: Iran has already answered all the UN atomic agency's questions over its nuclear programme, the foreign minister said on Wednesday, after the watchdog announced Tehran had agreed to respond to claims it was studying how to develop a nuclear weapon.

"In the past year there has been a friendly cooperation between Iran and the IAEA," Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said. "We have responded to all questions and ambiguities that the agency had.

"About the alleged studies - within that period of cooperation we responded to the issues that they had pointed out and our responses were completely clear, legal and logical," he said at a news conference alongside Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said on Wednesday that its deputy director general, Olli Heinonen, reached an agreement with Iran to examine allegations that Tehran has studied how to design nuclear weapons.

Heinonen had held closed-door talks with Iranian officials in Tehran Monday and Tuesday but no information filtered out on the contents of the discussions amid an apparent media blackout.

Mottaki insisted that Tehran's nuclear file was no longer a special case for the agency. "From now, on Iran's cooperation with the agency is the dealing of a ordinary member state with the agency under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and the IAEA's regulations.

"So we will have such trips and exchanges of views in the future," he added, in reference to Heinonen's visit. Tehran, Thursday, AFP
