IAEA: Iran Arming Up

IAEA: Iran Arming Up

An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report released on Tuesday said that Iran has begun activities focused solely on the creation of nuclear weapons.

According to The Telegraph, the 25-page report evidences extensive research done by the Iranian government into the use of enriched uranium in the creation of an explosive core for ballistic-tipped missiles.

The report also indicates that the country has researched the process involved in creating a sophisticated detonation device that would likely be used in a bomb similar to the Fat Man and Little Boy bombs used by the United States against the Japanese in 1945.

The report also detailed the existence of a nuclear research facility near Tehran.

Prior to the release of the report, atomic inspectors had voiced concerns publicly only about the “possible existence” of weapons work in Iran. The new analysis will most likely heighten international pressure on the country.

Reports from the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) indicate that Iran is denying any allegations of nuclear malfeasance, saying that its nuclear program is focused on energy development.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the IAEA report is simply another effort by the Western world to inhibit growth and development in Iran. He said that it is hard to justify the report coming from “certain countries” that like to “wage wars, occupy territories, massacre people, commit crimes and plunder resources of nations for the sake of the Zionist criminals.”
