ehran, May 21 (Prensa Latina) The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukiya Amano, on Monday predicted a positive result in talks with Iranian authorities to discuss this country’s nuclear program and global issues. Amano, who arrived in Tehran Sunday night accompanied by two high-level UN executives, today began discussions with Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili, after meeting with Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and other authorities.
“There has been a good progress during recent rounds of discussions between Iran and the IAEA. I think this is the right moment to visit (the country) and have direct talks with top officials to reach an agreement and I am positive,” the Japanese diplomat said.
However, the one-day visit, and the first one Amano carries out to Iran since he took his post, will not include to inspect atomic plants from the Central-Asian nation, stated officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when ratifying this country’s inalienable rights.

According to official media, Amano and his group also talked with IAEA director Fereydoun Abbasi on sensible and substantial issues, but without revealing the content or if there was any concret agreement.
