Japan's foreign minister on Tuesday urged Iran to comply with a resolution by the UN atomic watchdog calling on Tehran to freeze its uranium enrichment program, according to a government statement. In a telephone conversation with Iranian counterpart Manouchehr Mottaki, Japanese Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura said he hoped Tehran would make "a wise decision" on the nuclear issue after International Atomic Energy Agency last month adopted a resolution which found the country in violation of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Mottaki said Iran's development of atomic energy sources was for peaceful purposes, adding that Tehran had complied with all IAEA safeguards, and would continue to cooperate with the watchdog, according to the statement. The conversation came as Iranian diplomats signaled Tehran may grant access to sites linked to possible work on nuclear weapons and comply with other IAEA demands to avoid referral to the UN Security Council.
