IAEA calls on Iran regime to provide access to sites, information on nuclear weapons related activities

The United Nations nuclear agency chief said on Thursday that the Iranian regime had failed to provide explanations regarding its atomic bomb research and called on Tehran to step up cooperation with a long-running investigation.

Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, told a meeting of the IAEA’s 35-nation board of governors: “I call upon Iran to increase its cooperation with the agency and to provide timely access to all relevant information, documentation, sites, material and personnel.”

Iran and six world powers, also meeting in the Austrian capital this week, aim to reach a diplomatic agreement by a Nov. 24 deadline to end a 12-year dispute over the regime’s nuclear activities.
