Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to International Organizations in Vienna criticized misleading comments on Bushehr Nuclear power plant, saying it turns into a problem when technical matters are politicized.

Iran Press/ Europe: Iran's Permanent Representative to International Organizations in Vienna, as well as Iran's Permanent Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Kazem Gharib Abadi delivered a speech on Monday during the meeting of IAEA Board of Governors and said: "IAEA has a basic role in coordinating international efforts, presenting its experience and expertise as well as holding consultation to improve nuclear safety at global level.

He also noted that the Islamic Republic of Iran, as a receiver of IAEA's technical aids, has recognized the importance of these aids for the IAEA members in reinforcing the infrastructures of national nuclear safety.

"In this regard, the expansion of human resources and the reinforcement of capacities should be considered as a key point in safety, efficiency, and stability of any nuclear program," said Gharib Abadi, underlining "this kind of help should not be contingent."

Explaining about the safety status of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, he stated: "The safest reactors are being used in this plant. Their safety is clear in the world."
