IAEA Board Resumes Fresh Round of Meetings on Iran
September 16, 2004 - Today IAEA meeting about Iran's nuclear activities was conducted in the course of informal and behind closed doors sessions. The IAEA board resumed a fresh round of meetings about the nuclear program of a number of countries including Iran on Monday.
A resolution on Iran's controversial nuclear program is expected to be adopted in the coming days but today major differences reportedly remained. Meanwhile, Radio Farda correspondent reports from Vienna that the Non Aligned Countries’ (NAM) meeting ended today with Malaysia's representative saying that the draft resolution proposed by the EU is non-acceptable in its current form. He said the articles 7 of the resolution should be changed in order for the NAM countries to vote for it. Article 7 includes an Oct. 31 deadline for Iran to stop all uranium enrichment activities.
Differences over the resolution also remained between the US and EU countries. Radio Farda’s correspondent says the US finds the tone of the resolution too mild and is asking the reports on Parchin militay site to be included in the resolution. David Albright, a former weapons inspector, said new satellite images show Iran's Parchin military complex near Tehran may be a site of nuclear weapons research and production. But Iran today denied these reports and said these allegations are "lies" intended to influence talks over the resolution on Iran. The US is asking for Iran’s nuclear case to be referred to the UN Security Council. However Mohammad Al Baradei IAEA director opposes setting any deadlines on investigation into Iran’s Nuclear activities.
