Larijani: IAEA's Iran Report Double-Edged

“The agency made double-edged comments in its recent reports over Iran's nuclear drive,” Larijani told reporters in Tehran on Wednesday.

“The policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is to continue its cooperation and transaction with the agency,” Larijani said.

However, he added, “The Iranian nation will continue to safeguard its achievements.”

The confidential nine-page IAEA report claims the agency has received new information that Iran may not be merely developing nuclear energy for civilian purposes.

The report said that Iran is pushing ahead with its nuclear activities and "there were indications that certain activities may have continued beyond 2004."

The report again repeated what it commonly refers to as an overall assessment, claiming that the UN nuclear body cannot maintain that all nuclear items of Iran are peaceful.

The report was circulated to IAEA member states ahead of a board of governors' meeting next month.

The United States, the Israeli regime and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program.

Yet, as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, Iran has every right to develop and acquire nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.

In addition, the IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence indicating that Iran's civilian nuclear program has been diverted to nuclear weapons production.
