Bolayyan also expressed hope for the resumption of the six-party negotiations to reach a comprehensive peaceful agreement with North Korea



Bolayyan also mentioned the importance of having IAEA safeguard system which is being implemented in member states, noting that such system was the backbone of IAEA work, which is also the basis for the prohibition of nuclear weapons, and has the support of almost all countries in the world
