Iran's residing Representative at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh said the recent report released by the IAEA chief reveals Iran's peaceful nuclear drive.Soltaniyeh said that the report by the IAEA Director-General, Yukio Amano, indicated again that in spite of 8 years of constant inspections, no evidence has been seen to show any deviation of nuclear materials for military purpose.
He said that the main message of Amano report indicated that Iran's nuclear activities, including enrichment, is progressing with full success and without any halt and under full supervision of the agency. "Yet, certain boring and repetitious issues about baseless accusations and speculations on a number of activities will damage the scientific and expert stance of the IAEA," Soltaniyeh concluded.
US is at loggerheads with Iran due mainly to the independent and home-grown nature of Tehran's nuclear technology, which gives the Islamic Republic the potential to turn into a world power and a role model for the other third-world countries. Washington has laid much pressure on Iran to make it give up the most sensitive and advanced part of the technology, which is uranium enrichment, a process used for producing nuclear fuel for power plants.
