Iran, IAEA to discuss outcome of Geneva talksJuly 24th, 2008 - 2:40 am ICT by IANS
Tehran, July 24 (DPA) The heads of the Iranian Atomic Organization and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will meet in Vienna to discuss the outcome of the nuclear talks last week between Iran and the world powers in Geneva, ISNA news agency reported Wednesday. Gholam-Reza Aqazadeh and Mohamed ElBaradei will meet Thursday and discuss bilateral cooperation and how to proceed following the Geneva talks, Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization deputy Mohammad Saeidi told ISNA.
Aqazadeh, also vice-president, has already arrived in the Austrian capital although he has just recently been classified by the European Union (EU) as persona non grata within EU states.
Iran and the five UN Security Council member states plus Germany met last Saturday in Geneva with an Iranian delegation headed by chief nuclear negotiator Saeid Jalili.
Tehran was given two weeks’ time to give a clear reply to the main world powers’ demand that Iran suspend uranium enrichment.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad however reiterated Wednesday that no one in Iran would compromise over the country’s nuclear efforts and called on the world powers to accept the realities and correct their path towards Iran.
Tehran has however its own proposals for settling the nuclear dispute, reportedly within a long term negotiation process.
For the first time in almost three decades, the US, represented by Undersecretary of State William Burns, also attended official talks with arch-foe Iran in Geneva.
The Western powers fear that Iran might be using its nuclear programme to work on a secret military project.
Tehran denies the suspicions, saying its nuclear programmes are for civilian purposes only in line with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and supervised by the UN nuclear watchdog IAEA.
