Referring to possible military dimensions (PMD) of the country's nuclear program, he said: "We took necessary measures by Oct. 15 according to the IAEA report. Samples were taken and questions were answered. We expect the IAEA to issue a report before Dec. 15, though it seems to be impossible before the date due to technical considerations."
