Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), made the remarks talking to IRNA on the sidelines of the 59th Annual Regular Session of the IAEA General Conference on September 14-18 in the Vienna International Center, IRNA reported.
Asked about the remarks made by Rosatom head Sergei Kirienko that Russia will cooperate with Iran in Fordow, Kamalvandi said Tehran and Moscow have held good talks on the issue according to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA.)
About the latest situation of new units in Bushehr nuclear power plant in South of Iran, Kamalvandi said AEOI Head Ali-Akbar Salehi and Rosatom head have negotiated about the issue.
Providing money for some parts of Bushehr project by Russia was among the issue about which the two officials negotiated and the Russian side agreed with it, Kamalvandi noted.
He further said a working group including the six world powers will be formed according to JCPOA in order to cooperate with AEOI.
The other states cooperate with Iran in the related issues when the Iranian officials reach an agreement and members of the G5+1 achieve consensus on the issue, said he.
The plans are being done properly, stressed he.
Asked whether the talks will be held on Parchin facilities during the visit of the IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano to Tehran, Kamalvandi said cooperation between Iran and the IAEA is to be confidential.
On world states' stance on JCPOA during the 59th IAEA General Conference, he said they showed positive stance on the issue.
On July 14, Iran and world's six major powers known as the Group 5+1 (the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China) concluded their over a decade-long negotiations on Tehran’s nuclear activities which led to the signing of the JCPOA.
According to the text of the document, the anti-Iran sanctions will be removed in
exchange for some limitations on the country’s nuclear energy program; Iran will be recognized by the United Nations as a nuclear power and will continue its uranium enrichment program.
Iran has repeatedly announced that its nuclear activities aim at peaceful purposes.
