Iran's powerful parliament speaker Ali Larijani warned the UN nuclear watchdog on Saturday against playing for time in a dispute over Iran's controversial atomic programme.
Iran came under heavy fire at a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency this week for failing to come clean on alleged nuclear weapons work.
"The agency has submitted an ambiguous report. They might be pursuing a 'One Thousand and One Nights' diplomacy that they are continually playing for time," the state IRNA news agency quoted Larijani as saying.
The former nuclear chief was alluding to a collection of folk tales, also known as the "Arabian Nights," in which the storyteller Scheherazade, doomed to be executed, begins a new story each night but delays the ending till the following night as a way of staying alive.
In his latest report on Iran, IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei accused the Islamic republic of withholding key information on alleged nuclear weapons studies.
