The IAEA Board of Governors adopted a resolution 13 March on the IAEA's verification of Iran's nuclear programme. Among other points, the resolution notes "outstanding issues" and questions, and requests Director General Mohamed ElBaradei to report back to the Board on these matters before the end of May, in advance of its next meetings scheduled to start 14 June.

Iran responded to the resolution in a statement to the Board 13 March by Mr. Amir H. Zamaninia, Director-General for International Political Affairs of the Foreign Ministry of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The statement addresses issues raised in the resolution.

In his comments, Board Chairman Antonio Núñez García-Saúco of Spain noted that "many divergent views continue to exist as well as possible different interpretations with regard to parts of this resolution."
