Iranian Envoy Hits Back at US’ Bolton over Anti-Tehran RemarksIn a post on his Twitter account on Monday, Kazem Gharibabadi censured Bolton who accused Iran of “concealing nuclear material and/or activities,” amid a visit to Iran by the acting chief of the IAEA, Cornel Feruta.

“The agency is not one of the bodies affiliated with the US government so that Bolton could determine the agenda of visits by its officials,” he noted.

Feruta’s visit to Iran took place within the framework of routine Iran-IAEA interaction and cooperation, he added.

He further rejected “any claims about covert nuclear activities by Iran” and said the visit had no specific agenda, as Bolton wished.

In a tweet on Saturday, Bolton said, “IAEA Acting Director General going to Iran just as IAEA informs its Board that #Iran may be concealing nuclear material and/or activities. We join with other @iaeaorg Board member states eager to get a full report as soon as possible.”

The European Commission said Friday it was relying on the International Atomic Energy Agency in regard to Iran’s nuclear activities
