    TEHRAN, September 16 (RIA Novosti) - Iranian representative in the IAEA Hosein Musaviyan said Iran does not see any grounds to submit the Islamic Republic's "nuclear file" for consideration to the UN Security Council.

    "We don't have any fears that the country's 'nuclear file' will be submitted for consideration to the UN Security Council, as there exist no grounds for this, but, should this still take place, we will revise our cooperation with the IAEA," reads Mr. Musaviyan's statement.

    In his words, "the last report of IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei confirms the good level of our interaction with the IAEA and the peaceful orientation of mastering nuclear technologies in the Islamic Republic."

    Germany, France and the UK proposed a draft resolution of the IAEA Board of Governors on Iranian nuclear programs, which contains calls on Iran to suspend all work to create a full nuclear cycle and sets specific terms. This document became a reason for serious contradictions between the European countries. The Non-Alignment Movement member states disagreed with the submitted draft. They mentioned violations in the document of the rights to peaceful use of the atom.

    Active consultations with the aim to work out another draft resolution, which would satisfy most representatives from 35 countries-participants of the Board of Governors are underway in Vienna within the framework of the IAEA Board of Governors session.
