The head of the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran told the IAEA’s General Conference that the Agency should “avoid politicisation and maintain its independence, impartiality and professionalism”. He also asserted that “issues related to terrorism and cyber-attacks are the most significant nuclear security threats… My country’s IAEA safeguarded installations have been under sabotage and terrorist attacks for several times. It is clear that Iran will defend itself by all possible means and manners, but it is a necessity that the world community unequivocally and strongly condemn and take a stand on the act of terrorism against safeguarded nuclear installations”. He also met with IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi.
