Iran’s envoy to the IAEA, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, said the documents cited in a report by the UN’s nuclear agency were "fabricated and thus do not have any validity," AFP reported Friday.

The IAEA on Thursday expressed concern for the first time that Iran may currently be working on ways to turn enriched uranium into a nuclear warhead.

"When they showed these documents to us none of the documents had any confidential or secret stamps on them," Soltanieh reportedly said. "And thus it was proved that all of the documents have been fabricated and are baseless and thus do not have any validity.”

Soltanieh went on to say that “the issue of the missile or explosives has nothing to do with the IAEA's charter and function.”
