IAEA responsible for possible Israel, US attack on Iran: AEOI/ video clip
The head of Iran's nuclear body says Tehran will hold the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) responsible for a possible attack by Israel and the US on the country’s nuclear facilities.
In an exclusive interview with Press TV on Wednesday, Director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Fereydoun Abbasi noted how some institutions gain access to the information that Iran provides to the IAEA before UN Nuclear Chief Yukiya Amano presents them at the IAEA General Conference.
“Normally the reports are never circulated; especially, those which are provided to the Board of Governors and General Conference. But we have realized that even prior to the reports of IAEA chief Mr. Amano to the General Conference, some institutes gain access to the information,” Abbasi stated.
“If Mr. Amano ignores our request for not disclosing our data, he will be held accountable for possible damage inflicted on Iran's facilities, be it by a terrorist act or a military operation,” he warned.
The Iranian official further pointed out that most institutions work for Zionists and that Iran has seriously called on Amano to stop offering such reports to the General Conference.
“He [Amano] should be more responsible in this regard, particularly in a situation where some countries are hostile to Iran,” the AEOI chief stated.
Abbasi noted that in response to Iran's good-will gesture in cooperating with IAEA inspectors, the agency should urge countries hostile to Iran to stop resorting to terrorist acts that jeopardize the nuclear security of the Islamic Republic.
