ImageUNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The International Atomic Energy Agency must investigate Iran's newly disclosed uranium enrichment plant and Tehran must take immediate steps to show its program is peaceful, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday.

"This is now a clear challenge to the international community," Clinton told reporters in New York after Iran told the IAEA it had a second uranium enrichment plant under construction. The disclosure by Iran came just as six world powers and Iran prepare for rare talks on October 1.

"This facility sharpens our sense of urgency and underscores Iran's absolute need to engage seriously with us on October 1 and take immediate steps to demonstrate the exclusively peaceful nature of their nuclear program," she said after a meeting with Belgium's foreign minister.
