UN Nuclear Watchdog Says Iranian Regime Is Still Hiding Info on Nuclear Program
IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said Monday that the Iranian regime has yet to “clarify” issues related to recent explosives tests.
The Obama administration is hoping to sign a nuclear agreement with this dishonest regime.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
IAEA chief Amano says Iran yet to clarify issues relating to explosives tests and other measures that might have been used for bomb research.
The head of the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog said on Monday Iran had still not handed over key information to his staff, and his body’s investigation into Tehran’s atomic program could not continue indefinitely.
“Iran has yet to provide explanations that enable the agency to clarify two outstanding practical measures,” chief Yukiya Amano told the body’s Board of Governors in Vienna, echoing a report seen by Reuters last month.
The two measures relating to alleged explosives tests and other measures that might have been used for bomb research should have been addressed by Iran by last August.
“The Agency is not in a position to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran, and therefore to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities,” Amano said.
The West fears Iran wants to develop an atomic bomb. Tehran says its nuclear program is entirely peaceful.
Iran is already refusing to comply with IAEA (and have historically hidden information about their nuclear program). It’s ridiculous to assume they’ll comply with oversight if a deal is struck.
