Lavrov Called Iran to “Cooperability”

29.09.2009 12:45

As the Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov said following the meeting with IRI Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, the Russian party calls Teheran to show maximum of cooperability in relations with the International Atomic Energy Agency and acts on the premise that Iran has heard it.

“We proceed from the premise that the Iranian party has heard us, and at the meeting in Geneva we will have some result of our today’s talk,” Sergey Lavrov noted. “We have called to show maximum of cooperability in order that IAEA could know completely about the new object and one could begin to take all the Agency’s questions still remaining for Iran off the table, and thereby start to solve the Iranian nuclear problem.”

It will be recalled that a meeting of the Six international mediators and the Secretary of Iran's SNSC will soon take place in Geneva. Lavrov also called IRI authorities to show restraint, because rocket exercises give rise to concern in the context of this country’s nuclear program. “It is not prohibited by any international agreements,” Lavrov noted. “But, certainly, when missile launching accompanies the unsettled situation around the Irainian nuclear program, it gives rise to concern.”

As is known, on September 26 Iran opened for the UN inspectors the second uranium separation plant. With regard to this plant, IRI President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has already declared that there are no obstacles for inspection of this Iranian nuclear object by IAEA’s experts. On his part, Ali Akbar Salehi, Head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization assured that the plant at 100 kilometers south of Teheran, oriented to recovery of uranium, similar to the existing one in Natanza, will operate under IAEA’s control.

Moreover, earlier, on September 18, IAEA’s representatives refuted the information of nuclear weapon creation by Teheran. It was noted in the agency’s statement distributed in the United Nations that IAEA “has not specific evidence as to whether Iran has got or had any nuclear weapons program.”
