Vienna (IP) - Iran's ambassador and permanent representative to international organizations based in Vienna stressed the need to prevent the International Atomic Energy Agency from unnecessary releasing of information on Iran's nuclear program.

Iran PressEurope: Kazem Gharibabadi, Iran's ambassador and permanent representative to international organizations based in Vienna, in a letter to the director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released on Thursday, noted that the protection of confidential information by the IAEA is of great importance, adding: "The IAEA is strongly expected to end the unnecessary publishing of detailed information about Iran's nuclear program in its reports."

In this letter, Gharibabadi also called for a clear and unconditional condemnation of the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, an Iranian prominent nuclear scientist.

Gharibabadi stressed that the clear evidence shows the involvement and responsibility of the Israeli regime in this terrorist attack, saying: "The Agency and its member countries have an immediate and fundamental responsibility to Iran, which receives the highest level of inspection, but on the other hand, its scientists are threatened with assassination or are being assassinated, and its nuclear facilities are under threat of attack or sabotage."

The letter states: "The assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh is a continuation of terrorist acts that began a decade ago with the assassination of several Iranian nuclear scientists in 2010, 2011, and 2012, which requires due attention by the international community and international organizations, adding: "The Iranian ambassador and permanent representative to international organizations based in Vienna."

Gharibabadi emphasized: "The Islamic Republic of Iran reserves the inherent right of self-defense to take all necessary measures in response to this terrorist attack, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and international law."

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of the Research and Innovation Organization of the Ministry of Defense and a scientist in the country's nuclear industry, was martyred on Friday (November 27th) in a terrorist attack around Tehran.
