Iran PressIran news: The European Troika (the UK, France, Germany) put pressure on the IAEA's Board of Governors to issue a resolution against the Islamic Republic's nuclear program. 

Ali Bagheri told Iran Press on Wednesday that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was a technical body and the BOG member states were expected to act based on the technical approach of the agency. 

He said: "We have always invited different governments to let the Agency continue its technical and specialized role and not turn it into a place for political settlement due to their failures outside the Agency."

"We had very good and successful meetings with the main actors of the resistance both in Lebanon and Palestine, during the trip to Lebanon and Syria, where the approach of the Islamic Republic of Iran in supporting the resistance movement was emphasized again."

He referred to his contacts with a number of foreign ministers of the Islamic Cooperation Organization's member states and said that the support for the resistance front was emphasized; they agreed with the approach and would try to gain other member states' agreement.
