Gareth Porter said the “critical information” used in the IAEA’s latest report was provided by the Israeli intelligence agencies with the purpose of pushing through with “a new regime of sanctions against Tehran.”
“Israeli Foreign Ministry and intelligence officials told journalists Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins about the special unit of Mossad dedicated to that task at the very time the fraudulent documents were being produced,” Porter added.
International Atomic Energy Agency’ Director General Yukiya Amano’s latest report on Iran’s nuclear activities was given to the 35 members of the Board of Governors on November 8.
In its report, the IAEA claimed that Iran had engaged in activities related to developing nuclear weapons before 2003, adding that these activities “may still be ongoing.”
“Careful examination of the alleged studies documents has revealed inconsistencies and other anomalies that give evidence of fraud. But the IAEA, the United States and its allies in the IAEA continue to treat the documents as though there were no question about their authenticity,” Porter said.
Among instances of false accusations in the report, Porter pointed to a repeated claim that “former Soviet nuclear weapons scientist Vyacheslav Danilenko” had helped Iran construct a detonation system that could be used for a nuclear weapon.
Porter argued that Danilenko is not a nuclear weapons scientist but he is one of the prominent nanodiamonds specialists in the world, whose real identity the IAEA “never bothered” to check.
Iran has dismissed the IAEA report as “unbalanced, unprofessional and prepared with political motivation and under political pressure by mostly the United States.”
