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.

activities. It blames Israel and the US for the killings.
