New IAEA chief sees no proof of Iran N-bomb
Incoming IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano says there is no conclusive evidence to prove that Iran is enriching weapons-grade uranium, Press TV reported.
Amano, who was narrowly elected as the new head of the UN nuclear watchdog on Thursday, however, urged Iran to follow Security Council demands regarding its nuclear activities.
'Iran and other countries are under obligation to implement these Security Council resolutions," said Amano in his first news conference in Vienna.
"I hope the implementation by Iran and other countries will further help the agency to discharge its responsibilities," he added.
Washington and a number of European countries accuse Tehran of refining uranium for nuclear weapons development.
Iran, however, says its enrichment program is intended for civilian purposes and that it has a right to the technology already in the hands of many others.
