IAEA unable to quarantee Iran not creating nuclear weapons - Amano
Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano said today at the press conference that the agency is unable to quarantee that Iran is not working on creating nuclear weapons, RIA Novosti reported.
Amano made the remarks at the general IAEA conference today.
"IAEA continues to check for nuclear materials leakage in Iran, yet Iran does not give the necessary co-operation, so that we could make a statement on the absense of undeclared materials, an we also cannot make a statement that all of the nuclear materials in Iran are being used in peaceful purposes," Amano underscored at the conference.
The IAEA Board of Governors passed a resolution on Thursday voicing "serious concern" about Tehran's nuclear program asserting it wants a peaceful resolution for the case.
IAEA Governors Board imposed the 12th resolution against Iran, demanding it to allow the agency inspectors to visit Parchin military base, which is suspected to conduct nuclear-related tests.
IAEA chief Yukia Amano has asked Iranian government's allowance for inspection of Parchin since last October.
Iran on its part says Parchin is a military base, not nuclear facility, and thus it does not have any commitment to open access to it for the agency's inspectors.
