U.N. Nuclear Chief Says Iran Not Cooperating On Nuclear Inquiry

In a report given to the U.N. General Assembly, Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency Yukio Amano said that Iran is uncooperative with the Agency’s efforts to investigate the Islamic Republic’s controversial nuclear program. While discussion between the IAEA and Iran has been characterized by a sterner tact this year, Amano says that “no concrete results have been achieved,” though he has hopes that “we can reach agreement without further delay.” The IAEA Director also raised concerns over North Korea’s continued nuclear ambitions, saying their development of new reactors and enrichment activities was “deeply troubling.”
