Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in an exclusive interview with IRNA published on Sunday.
He said that “a good development has taken place in the course of cooperation” between Iran and the UN nuclear agency, noting that Iran had always been critical of IAEA chief Rafael Grossi’s politically-charged approach towards the country and that he has even brought up the issue in a face-to-face meeting with him.
“The more the IAEA distances itself from a political approach and moves towards technical cooperation, the more the path for our agreements opens up,” he pointed out.
Iran and the IAEA are currently in a dispute triggered by the agency’s accusations, which were leveled against Tehran’s nuclear activities. The IAEA insists to probe into what it claims to be “uranium traces” found at “undeclared nuclear sites” in Iran.
