Iran says IAEA should close nuclear PMD case: negotiator

English.news.cn   2015-12-08 03:47:30

TEHRAN, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Iran's senior nuclear negotiator, Abbas Araqchi, said Monday that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) should close the so-called possible military dimensions (PMDs) of Tehran's nuclear program.

The PMD program is in place in order to enforce Iran's nuclear agreement with world powers.

Araqchi's remarks came on the sidelines of a joint commission meeting in Vienna Monday between Iran and the P5+1, namely Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States, and Germany, according to Press TV.

Both sides reviewed issues pertaining to the nuclear agreement implementation, he said, adding that representatives from both sides also discussed the need for the UN nuclear watchdog to end Iran's PMD case.

Discussions were conducted "in a positive atmosphere," he said.

Araqchi criticized a few issues in the latest IAEA report regarding nuclear explosive device development, when it came to Iran's previous nuclear activities.

His remarks alluded to last Wednesday's IAEA report where the UN nuclear agency found no credible evidence proving that Iran pursued nuclear bomb plans post 2009, nor delivery system research after 2011.

The IAEA and Tehran signed a roadmap which included Iran's past unresolved nuclear PMD issues, according to the historic Iranian nuclear deal.

The report stated that Iran has implemented all necessary activities included in the roadmap, in cooperation with the IAEA.

The historic nuclear deal was signed on July 14 between Iran and the P5+1 group, where Tehran must significantly scale down its atomic plans in order to address Western countries' concerns over the alleged nuclear weapons program.

The IAEA has been charged with the responsibility to monitor that process, and the IAEA board members states are expected to discuss the report and adopt a resolution by Dec. 15.
