EU nuke resolution "most positive ever": Iran
font size    

A top Iranian nuclear negotiator on Monday voiced satisfaction over the latest version of a resolution presented by the European Union (EU) on Iran's nuclear issue, terming it as "the most positive ever", the official IRNA news agency reported.

"All the basic modifications demanded by Tehran have been written into the draft resolution. It is the most positive resolution Iran has ever clinched in its nuclear dispute," Hossein Moussavian, spokesman of the Iranian delegation to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors, was quoted as saying in Vienna.

Moussavian said the latest draft resolution would be submitted to the IAEA Board of Governors on late Monday.

"Doubtless, it is a moderate and balanced resolution," he said.

On Nov. 22, the European trio of France, Germany and Britain submitted its first draft resolution to the IAEA, which was criticized and disapproved by Tehran and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) members.

Meanwhile, Iran made a new demand that 20 of its centrifuges be exempt from the suspension.

Under such circumstances, the European trio started a new round of negotiations with the Islamic republic and modified the draft twice.
