TEHRAN, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali-Asghar Soltanieh said that the recent report of UN nuclear watchdog on Iran's nuclear program confirms the peaceful nature of the country's nuclear activities, Tehran Times daily reported Saturday.
His remarks came as a reaction to an IAEA report released Thursday.
The report confirm that Iran had started the installation of IR- 2m centrifuges, a new model of Iran's centrifuges which could significantly boost Iran's uranium capacity at Natanz fuel enrichment plant.
However, Iran stressed that the advanced centrifuges would be applied to produce 5-percent enriched uranium, after informing the IAEA about the installation.
"The main message of the report after ten years of inspection of Iran's facilities, materials, and nuclear activities is that there is no diversion toward military purposes in these activities and facilities," Soltanieh was quoted as saying on Friday.
"The agency also says in the report that (uranium) enrichment is continuing in Iran without any problem and under the full supervision of the agency," said the Iranian envoy.
"According to the agency's report, enrichment to a purity level of 20 percent with the aim of fueling the Tehran reactor is successfully continuing, and it indicates the peaceful use of enrichment to supply the Tehran research reactor with fuel to provide hospitals with radioisotopes they need," he added.
On Feb. 13, Iran and the IAEA held their latest round of talks on Iran's disputed nuclear activities but no agreement was reached.
