IAEA Pulled Back Sensitive Report on Iran Nuclear Program
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.
