IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano today informed the Board of Governors that he had received letters from the Governments of France, the Russian Federation and the United States concerning the provision of nuclear fuel for the Tehran Research Reactor.

The letters were in response to Iran´s 24 May letter officially agreeing to the Joint Declaration signed in Tehran last month by the Governments of Iran, Brazil and Turkey.

Attached to each of the letters was an identical paper entitled Concerns about the Joint Declaration Conveyed by Iran to the IAEA.

The letters and the paper have been conveyed to the Government of Iran through Iran´s Resident Representative to the IAEA.

"I will continue to use my good offices to follow up on this new development with the concerned Governments," the Director General said.
