Spokesman: Iran removed all nuclear concerns
Tehran has done everything necessary to "clear up" outstanding concerns about its nuclear program, a senior Foreign Ministry official said on Sunday.
"Iran has answered all ambiguities on its nuclear activities and there is nothing left on the table," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told a weekly news conference.
The IAEA's 35-member Board of Governors is expected to meet on June 14 to discuss Iran's nuclear case.
Asefi was optimistic about the result of the June meeting. "We are confident the ill-wishers will not achieve what they want," he said.
He renewed his country's call for its nuclear case to be removed from the U.N. nuclear watchdog's agenda afterwards.
"If the case remains open, it is because of the agency's laziness...and its unfounded fussiness," he said. (Albawaba.com)
