An Iranian representative at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh has declared that the report by the organisation's General Director Yukiya Amano jeopardizes the lives of Iranian scientists and their families.

The document contains information on alleged research carried out in the supposedly existing military branch of the Iranian nuclear programme. 

Soltanieh’s written statement, in particular, says that confidential information included by Amano in his report has made Iranian scientists “targets for physical elimination by Israel and US intelligence services”.
