IAEA chief: Iran ’s nuclear program special case
VIENNA – The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency singled out Iran for the first time Monday as a „special case“ because of suspicions it may be trying to make nuclear weapons. A senior Iranian envoy said Israel was the true threat to Mideast peace.
The statement by IAEA chief Yukiya Amano at the start of the agency’s 35-nation board meeting reflected international concern about Iran’s nuclear agenda, days before the U.N. Security Council is expected to punish Tehran for its refusal to heed demands to curb its activities. It also was in keeping with the generally tougher line taken by Amano on Iran compared to his predecessor, Mohamed ElBaradei, who was occasionally criticized by the U.S. and other Western nations for his perceived reluctance to take Iran to task.
