|Iran says it expects IAEA to close detonator probe||
TEHRAN – The Iranian nuclear chief has said that Iran expects the UN nuclear agency to take steps to close its investigation of the issue of Iran’s development of high explosive detonators.
Atomic Energy Agency of Iran director Ali Akbar Salehi made the remarks after a meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director Yukiya Amano in Tehran on Sunday.
The discussions with Mr. Amano focused on the issue of Exploding Bridge Wire detonators, Salehi said, adding Iranian experts answered the agency’s questions in this regard.
“We hope that Mr. Amano will take important steps with regard to Exploding Bridge Wire detonators so that the issue, which is being finalized, will gradually be closed,” Salehi said.
In May, Iran gave the IAEA information it had requested about its reasons for developing Exploding Bridge Wire detonators under a framework agreement on further cooperation that Iran and the agency signed last November.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Salehi said that Iran has taken steps to implement five additional practical measures it agreed in May to take as part of the framework accord.
