TEHRAN - Iran rejected as "politically motivated" a report by the UN nuclear watchdog on Tuesday, in which the Islamic Republic was accused of working on developing an atomic bomb design, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"The report of the International Atomic Energy Agency is unbalanced, unprofessional and politically motivated," said Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran's envoy to the IAEA.
