Najafi described the IAEA's technical meeting as 'useful', and said it focused solely on technical issues and dedicated its time to exploring the recent report of the UN nuclear watchdog's chief.

He stressed that the meeting acknowledged that the whole of Iran’s nuclear program including installations, equipment and material were totally monitored by the IAEA experts, adding that this proved Iran’s transparency in its nuclear activities.

The Iranian official further pointed out that the meeting also reviewed the recent meeting between Amano and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif which took place on the sideline of a security conference in Munich recently.

Najafi said the meeting stressed the need for continuation of nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers until the ultimate settlement of the issue.
