Iran Worried about IAEA Leak of Sensitive Information
“Iran doesn’t accept any heedlessness that would lead to the revelation of classified information,” Najafi said, addressing an IAEA Board of Governors meeting in Vienna on Thursday.
“The demand by certain Board of Governors members to receive such information runs counter to the Agency’s standard procedures,” he added.
Najafi underlined the necessity for the IAEA to double efforts to keep the information of Iran’s nuclear program confidential and hidden to the foreign spy agencies that attempt to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program and assassinate its nuclear scientists.
His remarks came after the UN nuclear watchdog agency announced on Wednesday that it “submitted on 8 September questions to Iran on ambiguities regarding the information Iran provided to the IAEA on 15 August 2015, as agreed between the IAEA and Iran in the ‘Road-map for the clarification of past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear programme’”.
“As also agreed in the Road-map, technical-expert meetings, technical measures and discussions will be organized in Tehran prior to 15 October 2015 to remove the ambiguities identified by the IAEA,” it added.
The statement further mentioned that the activities set out in the Road-map will be completed by 15 October and Director General Yukiya Amano will provide, for action by the Board of Governors, the final assessment on the resolution of all past and present outstanding issues, as set out in the annex of the Director General’s report of November 2011, by 15 December 2015.
Amano and Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi on July 14 signed in Vienna a Road-map for the clarification of the past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
And within the same framework, Iran presented its explanations about past and present nuclear activities in a written letter to the UN nuclear watchdog agency on August 15.
