Iran blasts killing of its nuclear scientists
Vienna: Iran`s envoy to the UN nuclear
watchdog agency says Tehran will push for more backing for its
campaign to prevent assassinations of its nuclear scientists
after a series of such killings.
Ali Asghar Soltanieh says he is "very sure about the
support of almost all member states" of the 151-nation
International Atomic Energy Agency. He spoke today outside the
group`s annual general conference.
Iran has acknowledged the assassinations of two nuclear
scientists since January 2010, and the wounding of a third.
Foreign officials assert a fourth man shot in July also
was a scientist who worked on aspects of Iran`s alleged secret
nuclear weapons program.
Iran is under UN sanctions for nuclear-related
activities. It blames Israel and the US for the killings.
