TEHRAN, Iran  — Iran's nuclear chief called remarks by the head of the UN's atomic energy agency a dangerous mistake on Tuesday.

According to the state news agency, Ali Akbar Salehi said "if Mr. Amano has expressed the remarks knowingly, he has committed a big mistake."Salehi said the situation was dangerous because it meant the International Atomic Energy Agency was responding to external pressure.

Amano said Sunday the agency cannot confirm that all of Iran's atomic activities are peaceful because of Tehran's selective cooperation with nuclear inspectors chiding Iran for barring some of those inspectors.
