JNS.org The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, reportedly nixed a sensitive report on the Iranian nuclear program last year over fears that it would anger Iran amid negotiations with world powers.

A source told Reuters that the new report would have probably included “updated information on possible military dimensions (PMD),” which could have “reinforced concern” about Iran. The report would have included extra details about alleged research and experiments that were originally covered in a November 2011 report by the IAEA.

The November 2011 IAEA report said the agency found information that Iran was carrying out tests that could be used to develop a nuclear bomb trigger.
