The UN nuclear watchdog said on Friday it protects the confidentiality of information gathered during inspections, indirectly rejecting an Iranian accusation it would feed sensitive information to Washington.

Relations between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have become increasingly strained over the last year, with the agency voicing frustration over what it says is lack of Iranian cooperation with its inspectors.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said earlier this week that the IAEA would pass on information about Iran’s nuclear program to the US if Tehran agreed to widen the agency’s inspection powers.
