Outstanding Issues with IAEA Discussed

A team of nuclear officials led by Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency Reza Najafi held a technical meeting with a delegation from the UN nuclear agency headed by IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Safeguards Tero Varjoranta in Tehran on Monday.
The focus of the meeting was the two outstanding issues that the agency says Iran has failed to address adequately as part of the transparency measures it undertook to implement under a cooperation agreement it signed with the IAEA in November 2013, ISNA reported.
The two remaining issues include alleged high explosives tests and studies that could be relevant for any effort to build nuclear bombs. Iran denies its nuclear program may have any military objectives, saying the work is meant only for peaceful purposes.
Iranian officials say they have already addressed the issues by offering “managed access” to the alleged site of the tests in Marivan region in western Iran and providing explanation on the studies.
The IAEA has requested Iran to propose more transparency steps; however, Tehran says it is ready to come up with new practical measures if the agency considers the previous cases closed.
