Iran: Israel has killed nuclear scientists all over Middle East

Reza Najafi, Iran’s ambassador to the IAEA

Iran’s envoy to the United Nations’ atomic agency says the Israeli regime has hired hit men to assassinate nuclear scientists all over the Middle East, and yet, continues to receive nuclear cooperation from certain countries, Press TV reported on Saturday.

Reza Najafi, who represents Iran at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), made the remarks on Thursday, addressing a quarterly IAEA Board of Governors’ meeting.

“While nuclear scientists across the entire Middle East have been assassinated by Israeli-hired terrorists, the regime’s nuclear experts are allowed access to some countries’ nuclear facilities,” he said, without naming those countries.

 Najafi strongly condemned the Western states for their disregard for the standing international laws of nuclear non-proliferation, which prohibit all types of nuclear cooperation with Israel and the transfer of nuclear materials and equipment to the entity.
