Iran Is Stalling

DSC_6048_edited-1Yukiya Amano, head of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA), said that Iran has again failed to provide explanations about suspected atomic bomb research as a deadline looms for a comprehensive deal between Iran and six world powers to end the long-running controversy.

As one of the conditions to end economic sanctions, the P5+1 said Iran must stop stonewalling the IAEA’s 12-year-old investigation into allegations that Iran may have worked on designing an atomic bomb.

Amano made clear that the IAEA agency is still far from satisfied.

He said: “We are 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.”

He was referring to two steps that Iran had agreed to carry out by late August, by providing information to the IAEA concerning allegations of explosives tests and other activity that could be used to develop nuclear bombs.

“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,” Amano said.

Iran denies any intention of seeking atomic weapons, saying its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity.
