Iran has called on the UN nuclear monitoring body to guarantee the confidentiality of information it will collect for verifying the peaceful nature of Tehran’s nuclear program, PressTV reported.
Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said on Tuesday that the body should “exercise utmost vigilance to ensure full protection of all confidential information coming to its knowledge” during its inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities under Tehran’s nuclear agreement with the six world powers.
“We will not accept any kind of leakage of classified information by anyone,” Reza Najafi said.
He reiterated Iran’s commitment to the implementation of the nuclear deal inked between Iran and the six powers – the US, France, Britain, China, Russia and Germany – in July.
Najafi also said Iran hopes for the “meaningful realization of fundamental shift” in the UN Security Council’s approach toward its nuclear dossier, following Resolution 2231 adopted in confirmation of JCPOA.
