VIENNA, September 14. /TASS/. There is a risk that terrorist organizations in the Middle East may obtain a dirty bomb, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi said on Monday.
"Iran is concerned about tendencies of fuelling terrorism in the region and warns about risks connected with the possible use of dirty bombs," Salehi told the 59th session of the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The countries that support terrorist organizations should understand the consequences this entails, he added. "The countries connected with financing or materially supporting [terrorists] will have to bear responsibility in case such problems arise," Salehi noted.
IAEA is a leading international forum of the scientific and technical cooperation in the sphere of peaceful use of atomic energy. The agency was established in the framework of the United Nations Organization in 1957 as an independent organization. It represents an international body tasked with controlling atomic energy and facilitating its safe use.
