Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks.

Civil rights group countered that it added an unconstitutional and burdensome layer of paperwork for tens of thousands of citizens.
