Summary
Home
A recently released report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is the agency’s second stinging rebuke in three months of Iran’s continued intransigence and obfuscation regarding its nuclear activities and raises alarms that Iran’s production of enriched uranium that it could use to make nuclear weapons fuel has sharply increased.

Coming on the heels of two inspections where IAEA experts were denied access to key Iranian nuclear facilities and scientists, the report builds on the agency’s November 2011 report that raised many of the same issues and adds to the evidence that Iran has stepped up its efforts to acquire a nuclear weapons capability. The report systematically details Iran’s failure to comply with IAEA demands to come clean on its nuclear program, including a sharp increase in enriched uranium production and unresolved activities at a suspect facility where nuclear warhead research may have been conducted. The IAEA’s conclusion notes that under these circumstances it cannot provide assurances that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful.
