10 February 2014 [13:15] - TODAY.AZ
The Spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said on Feb. 8 that the first day of talks between the country and a delegation from the International Atomic Energy Agency over steps to resolve outstanding issues regarding Tehran's nuclear energy program was constructive, Iran's IRIB News Agency reported.

"The talks are focused on steps to implement the November deal between Iran and the IAEA," Behrouz Kamalvandi explained.

He went on to note that the IAEA's delegation expressed satisfaction over Iran's cooperation in implementing the deal.

"Iran is working with the agency out of good faith," he added.

He further said that Tehran is trying to remove "artificial ambiguities" that have been created by the West over Tehran's nuclear energy activities.

The talks will end on Sunday.

Under the November deal between Iran and the IAEA, Tehran voluntarily agreed to allow the agency's inspection of certain nuclear energy sites.

IAEA inspectors have already visited Iran's Arak heavy-water plant and Gachin uranium mine.
