JUST-IN: Iran's Atomic Chief Admits Tehran Misled IAEA
Head of Iran's Atomic Energy Agency says Tehran gave IAEA 'false information to protect its nuclear facilities'
Head of Iran's Atomic Energy Agency Fereydoun Abbasi said Thursday that Tehran "occasionally" gave the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) "false information" to protect Iran's nuclear facilities.
In an interview with the London-based al-Hayat newspaper, Abbasi said, "There is no choice but to mislead other intelligence bodies. Sometimes we show weaknesses we don't have. Sometimes we show strengths we don't have. Later this is evident in talks with the IAEA."
