FM says concerns over Iran nuclear program are "baseless"
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian

New York, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has described concerns over progress in Iran's nuclear program as totally ungrounded.

Amirabdollahian, who is now in New York for the 76th session of the UN General Assembly on September 21-27, made the remarks in an interview with IRNA on Saturday.

Insistence of European sides on returning to Vienna talks is because they think Iran may reach some nuclear phases over which they express concerns, the foreign minister said while calling the concerns baseless.

Iran has repeated over and over that its nuclear activities follow peaceful purposes.

As Amirabdollahian stressed that Iran has proved that its program makes no diversion , which has been confirmed in the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports.

They (European sides) are after visiting the new Iranian government at the negotiating table, the foreign minister said.

He went on to say that talks for the sake of talks will not be fruitful as Iran is after talks with tangible results.

When Iran does its reviews completely, the sides will exchange views at the negotiating table, he noted.

As he underlined, the red line of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi is that the country should not be tied to Vienna talks.

Meanwhile, the Vienna talks may act as catalyst for economic achievements, he stressed.

Talks between Iran and 4+1 started as of April 2 while United States is indirectly attending the talks.

Once, Iran's top nuclear negotiator Abbas Araghchi had said that much legal, technical, and political discussion is necessary and that the talks will continue whenever needed.
