TEHRAN, Feb 8 (KUNA) -- Nuclear negotiations between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Tehran on Saturday are "good, constructive and progressing," an Iranian official said.
Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), said the two sides discussed today a host of issues regarding bilateral cooperation.
Negotiations will continue tomorrow, he said in a statement to official news agency (IRNA).
"We have answered the questions to show good will from our side and to address the fabricated vague issues," he said, and noted that Iran "is not legally obliged to answer these questions.
"The cooperation is taking place with the objective that the IAEA announces, after receiving the information and remarks of the Islamic Republic of Iran, that all vague issues have been addressed," he said.
The IAEA, said Kamalvandi, voiced relief for the cooperation of Iran within the framework of Tehran Declaration.
The Declaration, signed by IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano and head of the AEOI Ali Akbar Salehi last November 11, stipulates that Iran provides all necessary information and allow inspection of nuclear facilities.
Meanwhile, Deputy Managing Director of the AEOI Asghar Zare'an, said none of Iran's nuclear centers would be shut down, or eliminated and there is no need to heed the hue and cry of the foreign media.
He made the remarks during the opening ceremony of Arak Nuclear Center. (pickup previous) mw.bs KUNA 090027 Feb 14NNNN
