At the IAEA board meeting, Reza Najafi said his country is waiting to see IAEA's documents in regard to the so called "Possible Military Dimensions" of Iran's nuclear program.
"It's one of our concerns ... We haven't seen any substantiated documents with regard to the so-called PMD, so we are waiting to see to hear from the agency with regard to the information the agency has," Najafi said.
An IAEA report said that based on the "credible information" the agency got, there might be 12 items of activities in Iran's nuclear program relevant to the nuclear bomb research.
Iran has repeatedly said that the information concerning the alleged PMD issues IAEA got was forged and came from western spy agency, asking the agency to provide the documents to Iran, while IAEA demanded Iran to open access to its suspected elements of atomic plan.
"The constraints placed by some Member States on the availability of information to Iran are making it more difficult for the agency to conduct detailed discussions with Iran on this matter," Iran said in the statement to the board members.
Based on the deal made last November, Iran and IAEA agree to cooperate to resolve all the past and present issues of Iran's atomic plan, and Iran has implemented measures to provide greater transparency of its nuclear plan, including the clarification of the first PMD issue.
Both sides also agreed to implement the next five measures by August 15, exchanging information about another PMD issue, "initiation of high explosives, including the conduct of large scale high explosives experimentation" in Iran's nuclear plan.
Iran and six major states (Britain, China, France, Russia, the United states and Germany) struck a landmark deal, according to which Iran would suspend some controversial nuclear activities and western states relief some of the sanctions imposed on Iran in return, buying time for a comprehensive agreement for an end of the the long-term stand off.
