Report: Iran might approve more IAEA supervision of nuclear sites
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 03 - 07 - 2008


Iran might give the go-ahead for more supervision
of its nuclear sites by the International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA), the United Nations nuclear watchdog, ISNA news agency
reported Thursday, according to dpa.
ISNA said that in case of resumption of talks between Iran and the
five UN veto powers plus Germany (5+1), strengthening the supervision
of the IAEA of Iranian nuclear sites could be on the agenda.
Iran currently cooperates with the IAEA on the basis of the
Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and more supervision could
mean that Tehran might resume implementation of the IAEA Additional
Protocol, which, contrary to the NPT basis, would also allow snap
inspections of all nuclear sites.
ISNA, which did not mention from where it gained its information,
further wrote Iran would also vow for realization of nuclear
disarmament worldwide and more guarantees by all countries that
nuclear activities would not be deviated towards military projects.
Another aspect raised by ISNA was Iran's willingness for joint
cooperation in achieving peaceful nuclear technology, including
guaranteeing technological and financial aid for Iran's nuclear
projects and resumption of technical cooperation by the IAEA.
The IAEA technical cooperation with Iran was cut after the Islamic
state defied to follow the UN Security Council demand to suspend
uranium enrichment.
The report however did not refer to the main 5+1 demand from Iran
- also raised within the latest incentive package presented last
month by EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana to Tehran - which is
enrichment suspension.
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki told US media in New
York that Iran saw "a new capacity to arrive at a comprehensive and
multifaceted approach" but refrained to refer to the key issue of
enrichment suspension.
The issue of temporary suspension is said to have been raised
during Solana's visit to Tehran but President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has
several times stressed that Iran would not suspend enrichment even
short-termed and not accept this as pre-condition for talks.
There are however indications inside Iran that the country was
seeking a way to resume talks with the world powers with another
compromise without however giving up its principled stance of not
giving in to the suspension demand.
Observers believe that the only alternative for getting out of the
dead end would be Iran's readiness to resume the IAEA Additional
Protocol but Solana several times stressed in Tehran that the main
condition by 5+1 for resuming talks with Iran would be enrichment
suspension.
