Spokesperson for Iranian MFA, Ramin Mehmanperest, has said they were ready to cooperate to get a result at the nuclear negotiations.

On the negotiations between Iran and the International Atom Energy Agency (IAEA) that would be held in Tahran on Wednesday, Mehmanperest said many issues would be solved when their right to pursue nuclear energy would be accepted officially.

He said they were ready for full cooperation with the agency and expect their rights to be respected. He said they were optimistic about settling with the agency.

On the negotiations with 5+1 countries, Mehmanperest said their aim was to protect their citizens' rights. They did not want anything more and would not accept anything less than that.

Confirming reports that Iran was converting parts of its 20-percent uranium into fuel, the spokesman said the fuel was being used for medical purposes at Tahran Research Reactor.

Asked if Iran would let the IAEA inspectors visit Parchin site before any bilateral agreement was made on new modality between the two sides, Mehmanparast said, "Iran has repeatedly voiced its readiness to reach a comprehensive agreement with the IAEA which would recognize the former-s nuclear rights based on the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)."
