IAEA chief's talks with Iran 'useful'

2012-05-21 20:43

Tehran - International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano said on Monday that talks he held in Tehran with Iran's nuclear chief and top negotiator were "intensive" and "very useful," state broadcaster IRIB said.

The discussions were held in a "good atmosphere," he added, according to the Persian-language report by IRIB.

Amano's one-day trip to Tehran was being carefully watched for signs as to how willing Iran will be to allay international suspicions over its nuclear activities in broader talks with world powers in Baghdad on Wednesday.

    I'm no expert but I have a suspicion that the project plan for a nuclear reactor will be quiet different from an atomic bomb! Just saying ?

    The reactor built by the Russians is not the issue.Iran is welcome to have nuclear energy,just not the means to produce the fuel which would give them the ability to produce the bomb. Just saying ?

      Exactly. Plus it's not really Iran we're talking about, but the Iranian regime. There's a difference. The Iranian regime adjusts elections to hold onto power. It has hijacked the Iranian state from the Iranian people. It is not trustworthy, worthy of our trust.

    For News24 readers looking for a good overview of IAEA/Israel/USA uneasy relationship on Iran, can I suggest Scott Ritter's 'Target Iran'. Scott Ritter was a weapons inspector and gives a concise account of the timeline of events, including Israel's belligerence and how she is trying to suck the US into a war with Iran.

      Unfortunately Mr Ritter is a convicted sex criminal involving minors. His perspective is therefore somewhat warped.
