“If the American side acts realistically within the framework of the message it has sent and avoids repeating its previous hypocritical media remarks, we will not be far from an agreement,” Amir-Abdollahian said.
Iran's foreign minister added, “The problem, however, is that Americans always issue contradictory diplomatic and media messages. I mean, they send positive diplomatic messages while making different media remarks. We hope that [this time around] Americans would act realistically and avoid being hypocritical.”
Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency have also continued their cooperation in recent weeks to remove some ambiguities about Iran’s enrichment of uranium.
Recently, a delegation from the UN nuclear agency visited Iran and held talks with Iran’s nuclear officials. Now, spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi says IAEA chief Rafael Grossi is going to visit Tehran within the next few days at the formal invitation of AEOI chief Mohammad Eslami, according to Tasnim News Agency.
Kamalvandi said that delegations from Iran and the UN nuclear agency, led by IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Safeguards Massimo Aparo, held “constructive and promising” negotiations during the past days.
Kamalvandi expressed hope that the upcoming visit by Grossi would pave the way for brighter vistas for closer cooperation between Iran and the IAEA.
He also noted that Iran is working in interaction and coordination with the IAEA and keeps trying to prevent the creation of new ambiguities in the course of cooperation with the UN nuclear agency.
