Jalili calls for a balance between nuclear rights and commitments

Iran's nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, said ignoring a necessary balance between countries' nuclear commitments and their nuclear rights means weakening the IAEA status and disregarding its purposes.

Jalili made the remarks in a meeting with Brazilian Foreign Minister, Celso Amorim, in Tehran as outlining Iran's vast and continuous cooperation with the agency which sought building confidence.

He also described Iran's support for its irrefutable nuclear rights as favoring all the IAEA members' rights.

Iran and Brazil sharing the same stance on nuclear disarmament can take constructive measures on promoting the IAEA status, the Supreme National Security Council Secretary said.

Amorim for his part expressed satisfaction on the IAEA recent positive report on Iran's nuclear program and said his country hopes Iran's nuclear dossier could be referred to the IAEA soon.

The Brazilian official also moved to Iran's significant regional role and said creating peace and stability in Iraq and Afghanistan need Iran's aids.
