The IAEA has not detected the use of nuclear material linked to Iran's "alleged studies" of weaponization, the agency's latest report says.
The findings are part of a restricted International Atomic Energy Agency report forwarded to the UN Security Council and to the 35 board members of the agency on Monday, May 26.
“The Agency has been able to continue to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material in Iran. Iran has provided the Agency with access to declared nuclear material and has provided the required nuclear material accountancy reports in connection with declared nuclear material and activities,” said the report, a copy of which was obtained by Press TV.
(Bush/PNAC and Israel already know this. The illusion of a crisis has been created with the sole purpose of once again feigning a justification for another illegal war these sociopaths planned when plotting illegal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.)
The IAEA holds the view that clarification of the alleged studies "on the green salt project, high explosives testing and missile re-entry vehicle project" is critical "to an assessment of the nature of Iran's past and present nuclear program."
"Iran has agreed to address the alleged studies," it said.
According to the report, Iran's response to a May 9 request by the UN nuclear watchdog to provide "additional clarifications" on the nuclear drive is currently being assessed by the agency.
(Due to its past inability to prove that it is not doing something that War Criminals accused it of doing, without the evidence to support their empty allegations ...)
Director General of the UN nuclear watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei called on Iran to "implement all measures required to build confidence in the peaceful nature of its nuclear program," the report added.
The West (Israel and the USA) has been at loggerheads with Iran over the country's nuclear drive (the drive to provide for its growing energy demands with nuclear power.). Washington and its allies (Israel) accuse Tehran of pursuing nuclear weaponry; claiming that Iran's uranium enrichment program is aimed at producing fuel for a nuclear weapons progmra - such substance could also be used to produce electricity in nuclear power plants.
(But a weaponization program would need vastly more material, which would require a massive expansion of their tiny enrichment program, and this would be immediately apparent to the many eyes watching Iran's every move. The Israeli and American Extremists, once again, are giving Iran 'the Iraq treatment', in the name of another - but much larger - devastating illegal war.)
IAEA's latest report came a week after ElBaradei said that there is no 'concrete evidence' that Iran is developing a nuclear bomb.
(As has been the case all along. As the world's - including the American - intelligence services attest. Instead of wasting time and resources to investigate slanderour allegations, perhaps we should all demand these Extremists put up or shut up, once and for all ...)
"We haven't seen indications or any concrete evidence that Iran is building a nuclear weapon and I've been saying that consistently for the last five years," ElBaradei said speaking at a May 20 session of the World Economic Forum on the Middle East.
The IAEA boss referred to a Dec 3 joint assessment by 16 US spy agencies, which conceded with 'high confidence' that Tehran is not running a nuclear weapons program, and said that the US intelligence report confirmed his agency's assessment on Iran.

Israel & The 'Clash of Civilizations'
The largest threat to the region doesn't come from Iran: it comes from Israel's success in having had the US "neutralize" countries which it believes to be an existential threat to it's existence. However, there's just one little problem with this approach concerning Iran. Russia's diplomats have stated unequivocally that any attack against Iran will be perceived as an attack on Russia.
