Tehran, YJC. Iran’s nuclear chief says the IAEA will have to present real documents to justify its recent claims against Iran.

Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Aliakbar Salehi in interview with a local news agency said "We will not go for any claim by the IAEA unless it is documented and the person who has presented the agency with the document makes it clear what basis the charges rely on.”

Providing comments on the recent negotiations between Iran and the IAEA he said "Approximately 5 of the seven topics agreed by Iran and the agency fall within the Iran-P5+1 deal.”

He further pointed out "We have no nuclear discussion with the IAEA. There are some alleged studies which they had claimed previously and we told them they must have justifications for the alleged studies.”

Salehi further said "We have told the agency that it cannot be like that, anybody giving you a piece of paper and you come saying we have such charges to make. Your behavior is as though you would scan a Euro bill which is quite like a real bill but fake. We cannot do with such claims only on the grounds that they resemble a document.”

The Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization stated "First of all, the authenticity of the document has to be verified, else, if we would want to go that way, the IAEA would come up with a document every day, claiming day in day out that we have done something new. In each case the authenticity of the document has to be verified and the one who has given the document to the IAEA must come forward and present us with the real document. Once we are sure of its authenticity we can talk to the IAEA about it.”
