Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Friday described the move by the United States and three European countries to draft an anti-Iran resolution for the upcoming meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as "hasty and unconstructive", official news agency IRNA reported.

Making the remarks in a telephone conversation with Josep Borrel, EU high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, Amir-Abdollahian said Iran has the determination to reach a good, strong and lasting nuclear agreement with powers.

However, he said, the recent action of the United States and the three European countries in drafting the resolution is "contrary to the practice of diplomacy which will make the negotiation process more difficult and complicated."

For his part, Borrel criticized some attempts to thwart the nuclear talks in Vienna, underlining the need to speed up the talks and reach an agreement.

According to media reports on Wednesday, the United States, France, Britain and Germany prepared a draft resolution over Iran's nuclear program for the IAEA Board of Governors' upcoming meeting.
