IAEA shall ensure confidentiality of safeguards information

TEHRAN, Dec. 04 (MNA) – In reaction to the leaked of IAEA report to the media about installation of new centrifuges, Iran's Permanent Representative to International Organizations said that IAEA shall ensure confidentiality of safeguards information.

In a Friday tweet, Kazem Gharibabadi wrote, "@iaeaorg confidential report, based on Iran's confidential letter, appeared in Media immediately even before the BoG Members could track it down."

"Agency is not merely responsible to update the development but shall ensure confidentiality of safeguards information," he added.

"If neither the Agency nor its Member States are to be blamed for this crack in confidentiality, @iaeaorg should revise its confidentiality mechanisms including regarding using GovAtom as the safe and confidential means for communications," the Iranian diplomat said.

His remarks came as Reuters quoted the International Atomic Energy Agency as saying that Iran plans to install three more cascades of advanced IR-2m centrifuges at its uranium enrichment plant at Natanz.

Iran has told the UN nuclear watchdog it plans to install three more cascades, or clusters, of advanced IR-2m centrifuges at its underground uranium enrichment plant at Natanz, the agency told member states on Friday in a report obtained by Reuters.

As Reuters claimed the Agency said that Iran informed the Agency that the operator of the Fuel Enrichment Plant (FEP) at Natanz ‘intends to start the installation of three cascades of IR-2m centrifuge machines’ at FEP.
