Distancing itself from IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano's report on Iran and its pursuit of a nuclear programme, India today associated itself with a statement by the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) which criticised the language used in the IAEA chief's report.
"NAM notes with concern the possible implications of the continued departure from standard verification language in the summary of the report of the Director General," said the statement which was read during the IAEA Board of Governors meeting on behalf of over 100 NAM member states, including India.
Besides raising the issue of Israel's nuclear activities and the IAEA investigation of Syria's alleged nuclear site that was bombed by Israel in 2007, the NAM statement is sharply critical of Amano for accepting at face value Western intelligence information on Iran's nuclear activities.
