Iran envoy set for talks with UN nuclear chief

TEHRAN (AFP) — The head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation is to travel to Vienna on Monday for talks with the head of the UN nuclear watchdog, Mohamed ElBaradei, the official IRNA news agency said.

“Gholamreza Aghazadeh will travel to Vienna on Monday for talks with Mohamed ElBaradei,” it reported on Saturday.

The visit comes after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sparked an angry international reaction on Tuesday with the announcement that Iran was working to install 6,000 more centrifuges at its Natanz uranium enrichment plant.

Western governments warned Tehran that it faced further sanctions if it continues to expand its nuclear programme, which they fear is cover for a drive to develop an atomic weapon.

But Iran insists that its nuclear programme is entirely peaceful and aimed solely at generating energy for a growing population whose supply of fossil fuels will eventually run out.

Iran says that it will discuss its nuclear programme only with the UN watchdog — the International Atomic Energy Agency.

It insists there is no basis for involvement by the UN Security Council, which has already imposed three sets of sanctions over Iran’s failure to heed repeated ultimatums to suspend uranium enrichment.
