IAEA says it has ‘great expectations’ about talks with Iran about nuclear capability



The International Atomic Energy Agency expressed hope this weekend that its ongoing talks with Iran about the country’s nuclear capabilities and intentions would be fruitful.

IAEA Director Rafael Grossi said over the weekend that the talks comprise of two main topics: Iran’s transparency regarding its nuclear program, and its intentions for those nuclear capabilities for the future in both a military and scientific aspect. 

“Globally speaking, there are two sets of matters that are important. Clearly, there is great expectation about our joint work in order to move forward in the issues that Iran and the agency are working on, to clarify and to bring credible assurances about the nuclear programme in Iran,” Rossi told reporters in Tehran this weekend. “”The second set of issues, which is very important, has to do with (the) scientific, technical cooperation we are having and will continue to have with Iran.”

Iran recently admitted it had enriched uranium up to 84 percent, which brings the Middle Eastern country close to having weapons-grade uranium for use in nuclear weapons, which requires 90 percent purity. This week, Nour News, an Iranian news outlet with close ties to the Iranian government, claimed Iran’s nuclear ambitions are “completely peaceful.”
