Government of Iran and IAEA representatives to meet Dec. 14

Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran, Abbas Arachqi, said at the meeting that his country's authorities hold will hold a meeting with representatives of the IAEA and he expected "clarification of the potential concerns of the representatives of the agency'' on the situation regarding Iran's nuclear program.

IAEA will meet in Tehran on Thursday to discuss Iran's nuclear program.

Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran, Abbas Arachqi, said at the meeting that his country's authorities hold will hold a meeting with representatives of the IAEA and he expected "clarification of the potential concerns of the representatives of the agency'' on the situation regarding Iran's nuclear program.

The Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran, Arachqi Abbas, said Wednesday that his country's authorities will meet Thursday with representatives of the International Atomic Energy Agency for (AvIEA) to advance cooperation.

Arachqi explained to the press that the meeting will be framed by the Iranian statement that successful meetings "require an atmosphere free of nuance and political arguments."

The Foreign Ministry spokesman also said he is optimistic and hopes the meeting "will clarify the possible concerns of the representatives of the IAEA" and to achieve general agreement on inspections in places not specifically nuclear.

"The collaboration framework must be defined. Inspections and cooperation beyond our obligations to the IAEA need to be clarified," he added.

Meanwhile, the IAEA delegation left Vienna for Tehran to find "an agreement on a structured procedure to clarify outstanding issues related to possible military dimensions of its nuclear program."

Also, the chief inspector of the UN nuclear Disarmament Agency, Herman Nackaerts, said "we hope that Iran will allow us to also enter Parchin" a military base southeast of Tehran that the IAEA intendsed to inspect since early this year.

The meeting of the IAEA and Iran is done while organizing a meeting between Tehran and the Group 5 +1 powers to try to reach an overall agreement on the Iranian nuclear situation.

On the 21st of November, the political directors of the P5 +1 met in Brussels where he pledged to "maintain as far as possible" a meeting with Iran.

Western powers and Israel accuse Iran of seeking to acquire atomic weapons. Tehran strongly denies this, saying its program is purely civilian.

The IAEA wants to obtain an unconditional access to sites such as the Parchin military base and scientific papers seeking to verify  Iran's nuclear program.

In the last quarterly report, in May, the IAEA said that iin the vast Natanz plant (central Iran) and in Fordo, there was a total 145.6 kilos of uranium enriched up to 20 percent, compared with 110 kilos in February.

The Security Council of the UN has issued since 2006 four rounds of sanctions against Iran to force greater cooperation from Tehran.

Meanwhile, Israel and its obedient servant, the USA, have resisted all calls by the international community to allow inspections in Israel or to declare the Middle East a nuclear free zone.  It is well known that Israel has a considerable stockpile of nuclear weapons and has refused to sign the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty.
