Teheran, Iran, 24 November / Trend corr. A.Namdari/ "The next report on Iran of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has several dubious points," said official of the Iranian Foreign Ministry Hasan Gashgai.

That was Foreign Ministry's first reaction to the IAEA report. According to Gashgai, when developing the report IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei was subjected to pressure by several countries.

IAEA report says that Iran does not cooperate with the IAEA observation groups. However, Gashgai stressed at a conference on 24 November that the Islamic Republic does cooperate within the IAEA Charter.
