VIENNA (AP) — Diplomats say the U.N. nuclear agency is set to issue its latest report on Iran's atomic activities, just days before Feb. 26 talks between Tehran and six world powers.
The diplomats said Thursday the International Atomic Energy Agency's report will be circulated later in the day to the agency's 35 board members. Iran merits special IAEA reporting because it has ignored U.N. Security Council demands to stop activities that could be used to make nuclear weapons.
Chief among those is uranium enrichment. Tehran says it has no interest in nuclear weapons and insists it is enriching only to make reactor fuel and for scientific and medical applications. But many nations fear it could also apply the technology to its other use — creating the core of nuclear missiles.
