Tehran, Jan 11, IRNA -- Rapporteur of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazem Jalali said on Wednesday the Zionist and US intelligence agencies are behind the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist.

He was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a Majlis open session.

Jalali said past experiences show that terrorist acts such as the assassination of University Professor Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan are the work of the intelligent agencies of the Zionist regime and US.

“These facts show that the information given to international organizations are transferred to the security and intelligence agencies of the enemies,“ he said.

“International bodies such as International Atomic Energy Agency should be held responsibility of disclosure of the nation's secrets such as specifications of its scientific figures which led to assassination of Ahmadi-Roshan, 'he added.
