Iran blocking work of UN nuclear watchdog

Tuesday, October 28, 2008 |  Israel Today Staff

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency on Monday complained that Iran is blocking its efforts to determine whether or not there is a military dimension to the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.

"I regret that we are still not in a position to achieve full clarity regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran," the Associated Press quoted Mohammed ElBaradei as telling the UN General Assembly.

ElBaradei insisted that Iran be more transparent if its nuclear program is truly for peaceful purposes only.

Iranian Ambassador to the UN Mohammed Khazaee responded by calling the UN's demands that Iran stop enriching uranium and fully open itself up to inspection "illegal."
