IAEA has new info on alleged nuclear weapons work by Iran

-

AFP: The UN nuclear watchdog said Friday it had received new information on allegations of possible military dimensions to Iran’s controversial nuclear programme.

VIENNA (AFP) — The UN nuclear watchdog said Friday it had received new information on allegations of possible military dimensions to Iran’s controversial nuclear programme.

The International Atomic Energy Agency has been investigating the Islamic republic’s disputed atomic drive for a number of years now, with a whole range of issues still unresolved, among them allegations that Iran had undertaken studies to build a nuclear payload for a missile.

In a restricted new report, a copy of which was obtained by AFP, the IAEA said Iran was still refusing “to discuss a number of outstanding issues related to possible military dimensions to its nuclear work.”

Indeed, “additional information… has come to the (agency’s) attention August 2008, including new information recently received” which gave rise to “further concerns,” the report said.

“Iran is not engaging with the agency in substance on issues concerning the allegation that Iran is developing a nuclear payload for its missile programme,” the report said.
