TEHERAN, Iran — Iran's nuclear chief on Thursday expressed displeasure over a report issued this week on its nuclear program by the UN atomic agency, which included information on how less centrifuges were functioning than previously believed.

The semi-official Mehr news agency quoted Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran's nuclear department, as saying the International Atomic Energy Agency should just inspect the nuclear facilities and not give out any details like "how many kilograms of uranium or how many centrifuges we have."

Iran has repeatedly accused the agency's inspectors of leaking information found during their inspections to the US and its allies.

In the report, Amano said Iran had not provided the necessary cooperation to show that all nuclear material in the country was involved in peaceful activities only.
