VIENNA, October 30 (Itar-Tass) - Iran is ready to simplify the conditions of access of international experts to the country’s nuclear facilities. A source familiar with the negotiations of Iranian diplomats with experts of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said that the proposal is part of a “new approach” proposed by Tehran.
“Iran proposes a rather transparent programme, including within the framework of existing agreements and IAEA practices - at the sites where the inspectors are present they will be able to get access to more information and to some events where they had a limited access or no access at all,” he said.
However, he said, “access to the Parchin facility has not been discussed at the negotiations.” “Both sides believe that it would be possible to negotiate it in the phase when confidence is restored and steps are taken within the framework of existing practices,” said the source.
Iran and the IAEA have finally decided to abandon the development of an old document on the approach to determining the possible military component of Iran’s nuclear programme, the source added.
According to him, the ultimate goal of the new approach should be to close the Iranian “nuclear dossier.”
The source also said that Iran is ready to simplify the conditions of access of international experts to the country’s nuclear facilities. This proposal is part of the “new approach” proposed by Tehran.
