Iranian envoy to the IAEA Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh said on Friday that the UN watchdog violated the agency's Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement when it released the names of Iranian nuclear scientists in a report detailing the country's nuclear program, according to PressTV. 

In a letter to IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano, Soltaniyeh argued that publishing the scientists' names "has made them targets for assassination by terrorist groups as well as the Israeli regime and the US intelligence services."

The envoy contended that Iran reserves the right to demand compensation from the agency for any damage resulting from the report, according to Israel Radio.
