VIENNA (Reuters) – The U.N. nuclear agency declared Iran had failed to halt nuclear work by a Thursday deadline, in a confidential report leaked to Reuters.
Here is a summary of the report of the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA):
* Iran has been providing the Agency with access to nuclear material and facilities, and has provided the required reports. Although Iran has provided the Agency with some information concerning product assays at PFEP (Pilot Fuel Enrichment Plant), Iran continues to decline Agency access to certain operating records at PFEP.
* Iran has not addressed the long outstanding verification issues or provided the necessary transparency to remove uncertainties associated with some of its activities. Iran has not suspended its enrichment related activities; nor has Iran acted in accordance with the provisions of the Additional Protocol.
* The Agency will continue to pursue its investigation of all remaining outstanding issues relevant to Iran’s nuclear activities. However, the Agency remains unable to make further progress in its efforts to verify the correctness and completeness of Iran’s declarations with a view to confirming the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program. The Director General will continue to report as appropriate.
