Report US atomic weapons: Ahmadinejad to IAEA

Wednesday November 09, 2011 09:16:27 AM, IANS

Tehran: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to issue a report on the atomic arsenal of the US, the Fars news agency reported.

The IAEA should release reports on the US atomic bombs concealed in 1,000 of its military bases, Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.

The agency should report on the US atomic weapons instead of releasing "unreal" reports on the civilian nuclear programme of "independent" countries like Iran, he said.

Ahmadinejad said the IAEA was a tool at the hands of a number of countries who want to control the world, according to Xinhua.

He said that "unfortunately" IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano has "violated the agency's rules" by repeating the words of the US, according to Fars.

The IAEA director-general has urged Iran to cooperate with the agency to prove that its nuclear programme was for peaceful purposes.

Iranian leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami has also said the US was using the IAEA as a "tool against Iran".

"The US is using international organisations, including the IAEA, as tools to pressure Iran over its nuclear programme," Khatami was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

Recent tensions between Iran and the West over Tehran's nuclear programme has raised concerns that the US and Israel may consider a possible military strike on Iran's nuclear sites.
