NEWYORK, (SANA): Iran has charged that assassins who killed an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran last week may have used information obtained from the United Nations.
Iran’s deputy U.N. ambassador Eshagh Al Habib said that there was a “high suspicion that terrorist circles used the intelligence obtained from United Nations bodies, including the sanctions list of the Security Council and interviews carried out by IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) with our nuclear scientists, to identify and carry out their malicious acts.”
Ahmadi-Roshan recently met with IAEA inspectors, Al Habib told the Security Council, “a fact that indicates that these U.N. agencies may have played a role in leaking information on Iran’s nuclear facilities and scientist.”
VIENNA: The U.N. nuclear watchdog said Friday it did not know an Iranian scientist who had been killed last week, rejecting Tehran’s suggestions it may have been partly to blame for his death by leaking information about him. The International Atomic Energy Agency, a Vienna-based U.N. body, also separately confirmed that senior IAEA officials would travel to Tehran later this month for rare talks about the Islamic Republic’s disputed nuclear program.
TEHRAN/JERUSALEM — An ally of Iran’s supreme leader called on Friday for Israel to be “punished” for killing nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan and the top U.S. general urged his Israeli ally to coordinate with Washington as crisis builds in the Middle East.
