MOSCOW, February 7. /TASS/. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is due to play a key role in carrying out inspections within the framework of a possible future agreement between Iran and P5+1 (comprising six world powers, permanent members of the UN Security Council - Russia, France, China, the United States and the United Kingdom - and Germany), the Russian Foreign Ministry said upon the results of a meeting of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and IAEA Secretary General Yukiya Amano on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.
"Russia has underscored that the IAEA is due to play a key role in carrying out inspections within the framework of a possible future agreement on final and overwhelming settlement of Iran’s nuclear programme," the ministry said. "For maintaining the IAEA sustainable operation, it will be of upmost importance that these inspections should be based on generally acknowledged practice of the agency’s application of safeguards.".
