MP urges IAEA chief to reconsider his Iran report

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 21, IRNA -- Head of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi urged the UN nuclear watchdog’s chief to reconsider his report on Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities.

The International Atomic Energy Agency’s new chief Yukiya Amano released his first report on Iran last Thursday claiming that the country’s latest achievements in 20-percent uranium enrichment have been made without informing the IAEA.

“Since Mr. Amano is to present his report to the agency’s Board of Governors next Monday, he’d better use the chance and change the report,” Boroujerdi told reporters referring to the report as the most “non-legal” and “unrealistic” one which has been yet released by the UN nuclear watchdog.

“Iran’s latest achievements in 20-percent uranium enrichment have been officially announced to the IAEA and have been made under supervision of the agency’s inspectors,” Boroujerdi stressed.

He regretted that Amano’s report is more politicized than technical.
