UN nuclear watchdog: No progress in Iran investigation
The UN nuclear watchdog said Monday that it has been unable to make much progress with Iran in its investigation into allegations that Tehran was involved in studies to make an atomic bomb.
According to AFP, the IAEA "regrettably has not been able to make any substantive progress on the alleged studies and other associated key remaining issues which remain of serious concern," it said in its latest report. "On this particular issue, we've arrived at a gridlock," a senior official close to the IAEA told reporters. The report added Tehran continues to expand its capabilities to enrich uranium.
The restricted report will be discussed by the IAEA's board of governors next week. The IAEA's report is being sent to the U.N. Security Council.
