Tehran, Bern Sign Nuclear Safety Agreement

Iran and Switzerland signed an agreement in the Austrian capital Vienna, foreseeing bilateral cooperation in the area of nuclear safety. The memorandum of understanding was signed by the two countries’ top nuclear safety officials at Iran’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations and other international organizations in Vienna, IRNA reported on Wednesday. “The agreement has been signed following Iran’s nuclear deal with P5+1,” said Nasser Rastkhah, the head of Iran’s Nuclear Safety System Center, who put his signature to the accord alongside Hans Wanner, the director general of the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate. In July 2015, Iran and P5+1, namely Russia, China, France, Britain and the US, plus Germany, signed a landmark nuclear deal. The deal, which came into force in January, envisaged Tehran scaling back its nuclear program in return for the lifting of nuclear-related sanctions. Rastkhah said the agreement with Switzerland shows “Iran and world countries are moving toward international interactions.”
“The pact came about on the back of Switzerland’s proposal and will be a prelude to cooperation in the area of nuclear safety,” he said.
