Iran's supreme leader said Sunday that the US and its allies are influencing the UN nuclear watchdog agency's stance on Teheran's nuclear program.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in comments broadcast on state television that recent reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency "show that this international agency lacks independence."

He said the watchdog "should not be influenced by the US" and other countries because that could undermine the agency's "prestige and reputation."

Khamenei's comments came two weeks after the IAEA expressed concern Iran may be currently working on a nuclear warhead.
