NYT's Iran nuke report nonsensical

Iran has categorically rejected a report in the New York Times which accuses the country of having enough nuclear fuel to make nuclear weapon.

Iran's ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh, said that the report was unjustified and politically motivated, Press TV reported.

"The allegations are aimed at misleading the public and have no technical basis," Soltaniyeh said.

The New York Times cited a nuclear expert as saying that the amount of low enriched uranium at Iran's disposal could help Iran to make nuclear bomb.

Soltaniyeh said that Iran's nuclear sites are under surveillance of IAEA cameras 24 hours a day.

"The nuclear material at Natanz' site is held in a container sealed by IAEA experts and recorded by the same cameras," he added.

The latest report released by IAEA's chief, Mohamed ElBaradei, indicated no diversion in Iran's nuclear program.
