A senior member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami said Monday that the documents of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on its missile program are “fake,” the official IRNA news agency reported.

Khatami called on the IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano “not to defame the nuclear watchdog by unveiling false documents,” said the report.

Khatami, also the leader of Tehran’s Friday prayers, made the remarks Monday when he led Tehran’s Eid al-Adha prayers.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said Saturday the documents of the IAEA on its missile program are “unfounded and baseless.”

The United Nations nuclear supervision agency IAEA is expected to release a report on Iran’s nuclear program next week, which is likely to hint at Iran’s engagement in nuclear weapons work despite UN sanctions.

Amano had said at the UN General Assembly that while it’s too early to make conclusions just yet, the report may possibly exacerbate Middle East tensions.

He urged Iran to cooperate with the IAEA to prove that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
