Ambassador to the IAEA: Iran concerned over leak of confidential intelligence from the IAEA

Wednesday, 9 May 2012

Asqar Soltaniyeh, Iran’s Ambassador to the IAEA called on the agency to reinforce confidentiality policies. He said,

The agency should strengthen its confidentiality policies in order to prevent any leakage of sensitive and confidential information of member states… Leaking information from the IAEA is a matter of serious concern since such information is directly related to information received during the performance of agency’s verification and inspection in a member state… The release of such confidential information, therefore, jeopardizes the national security of member states and that of individuals working with inspectors. Therefore, it has direct impact on the mutual trust between member states and the secretariat and thus on verification activities of the IAEA.
