Iran Considering Suit Against IAEA


Iran's representative to the International Atomic Enegery Agency (IAEA), Al Asghar Soltaniyeh, said on Friday that his country reserves the right to sue the agency for compensation for any damages incurred as a result of the non-fair and non-justified reports, as he put it, issued by the Agency regarding Iran's nuclear program.

In a letter to IAEA chief Yukio Amano, Soltaniyeh protested the fact that the IAEA transferred the latest report's findings, before its official publication, to several countries including the United States and Britain. According to Soltaniyeh, this is a clear violation of agency rules and of the principle of equality among all member nations.
