Iran yesterday accused the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of "publishing confidential data about Iran", warning that it will take all "necessary measures to put an end to this problem."

Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran spokesman, Behrouz Kamalvandi, said in a statement that the dissemination of secret information had become a "method adopted by the agency," explaining that the organisation "from time to time publishes detailed and partial information on Iranian nuclear data."

"Given the repeated incidence of publication of Iran's documents, it looks like this is a trend that is underway under the influence of certain countries with certain goals, part of which is waging psychological war," Kamalvandi added, Press TV reported.

"Because there is no reason for publication of this information," he noted.

He warned that the Islamic Republic might be forced to "take (some) actions to stop this situation" such as rethinking the way it interacts with the agency if the situation was to continue.
