    VIENNA, January 28, 2004. (RIA Novosti correspondent Borislav Pechnikov) -- Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamad ElBaradei hopes that Iran will 100 per cent cooperate with the Agency and will render it assistance in verifying Iranian nuclear programmes.

    This is pointed out in the IAEA General Director's statement, which was made public through the channels of the Agency's secretariat in Vienna.

    It is important to come to a common agreement with Teheran in questions of its nuclear programmes. I hope that Iran will 100 per cent cooperate with the Agency and render it assistance in verifying nuclear programmes and facilities, said ElBaradei.

    According to him, the IAEA does not have any evidence that Teheran enriches uranium and develops programmes for creating its own nuclear weapons.

    Touching upon the question of how laser centrifuges for enriching uranium appeared in Iran, the IAEA head said that most likely private companies have to do with this matter, and I am not inclined to accuse the government.

    At the present time investigation is underway in order to avoid such a very dangerous thing in the future, said ElBaradei.
