May 3, 2006 13:59

A top Iranian official told leaders of the United Arab Emirates Wednesday that the region's security concerns over its nuclear file were "baseless", and said any Gulf intervention to ease the rising tensions would be welcome. Speaking to reporters in the Emirates' capital, Abu Dhabi, Iran's top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani denied that the Bushehr nuclear plant posed a risk to the region. "This is baseless ... This plant does not emit any harmful radiation. It does not even contain any nuclear fuel yet," the Emirates News Agency WAM quoted Larijani as saying late Tuesday.
