New UN report confirms Iran nuke probe stalled

A new report by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Iran’s nuclear program says that the latest effort to investigate the secret work on atomic arms by the Iranian regime has failed to make headway, Associated Press reported.

The Iranian regime had agreed in February to cooperate in restarting the investigation by the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, after a decade of deadlock.

Since then, the U.N. agency has sought information on experiments with detonators that can be used to set off nuclear explosions; separate work on high-explosive charges used in nuclear blasts, and studies on calculating nuclear explosive yields.

The confidential IAEA report, issued Friday, made clear that there has been little progress.

Diplomats in Vienna said on Wednesday that the United Nations latest attempt to probe into the Iranian regime’s nuclear program for finding answers to questions regarding the atomic arms dimension of its clandestine activities has stalled, Associated Press reported.

The diplomats said that the Iranian regime had only provided information on the detonators, insisting that they were used only for oil exploration.

While such applications are possible, the agency says that its body of interconnected information suggests that they were being tested for nuclear weapons use.
