"The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has indicated in a new report that Iran has been developing a nuclear weapon. Evidence detailed in the report suggests Tehran's nuclear program has a military dimension.
The UN's nuclear watchdog gave its clearest indication to date on Tuesday that Iran's nuclear program has a military dimension. A report published by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) claimed it had "credible" evidence that Iran has worked on developing a nuclear weapon design and had conducted experiments on components.
The Vienna-based agency said it had "serious concerns" after finding that Iran had worked on using uranium metal in a nuclear warhead and on computer-modeling of nuclear explosions.
"The information also indicates that prior to the end of 2003, these activities took place under a structured program, and that some activities may still be ongoing," the keenly awaited report said.
The IAEA called on Iran to engage with the agency without delay for the purpose of providing clarification. In the past, Tehran has asserted that it s nuclear program was peaceful, dismissing "falsified information" in the report even before it was published."
