US expected to take into account NIE report on Iran

Tehran, Dec 4, IRNA
Head of Majlis Commission on National Security and Foreign Policy Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Tuesday that the US administration is expected to take into account admission of the US national intelligence estimates (NIE) in its policy making on Iran.
Boroujerdi told IRNA that the NIE admission of its mistake proved accuracy of statements by Iranian officials about civilian nature of Iranian nuclear program.
He said that NIE's former report accusing Iran of pursuing weapons program had been fabricated under influence of the Zionist lobby in Washington aimed at delaying international action against the Zionist regime which has stockpiled 200 nuclear warheads.
Boroujerdi said that Israel has put security of the Middle East in jeopardy and needs to divert public opinion towards Iran's nuclear program.
"Once again, Iran has proved that its nuclear program is transparent."
The NIE report comes after International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Mohamed ElBaradei verified civilian nature of Iranian nuclear program on November 15.
In his report to IAEA Board of Governors, ElBaradei confirmed non-diversion of nuclear materials and that the answers Iran given to the Agency about the outstanding issues "support the documentation."
