Citing previous assassination attempts on Iranian scientists, Khazaei said there is strong proof that foreign agents are behind such terrorist acts with the purpose of curbing Iran's nuclear program and under the pretext that diplomacy cannot stop the country's nuclear activities.

Iran's Ambassador to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaei, has expressed deep concern over the "inhumane acts of terrorism" against Iranian scientists, urging the world body to strongly condemn such "foreign-sponsored" measures.

In a Wednesday letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the Iranian envoy called on the UN, the Security Council and other international bodies to adopt necessary strategies to eradicate terrorism in all forms.

Citing previous assassination attempts on Iranian scientists, Khazaei said there is strong proof that foreign agents are behind such terrorist acts with the purpose of curbing Iran's nuclear program and under the pretext that diplomacy cannot stop the country's nuclear activities.

He noted that such agents spare no efforts to deprive the Islamic Republic of its inalienable right to peaceful nuclear activities, stressing that they seek to carry out covert operations including the assassination of nuclear scientists and other forms of military attack.

The Iranian diplomat underlined the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear activities and highlighted the country's "absolute"right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
