UN Watchdog Says Iran Still Stalling On Nuclear Program Information

The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog says Iran has not addressed all suspicions that it may have researched an atomic bomb -- potentially complicating efforts by six world powers to reach a nuclear deal with Tehran by the end of June.

A report on February 19 by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Iran's nuclear program said Tehran had still not provided information about two areas of the IAEA's investigation that was due by late August.

The document was issued to IAEA member states weeks before a March deadline for a framework agreement between Iran and the so-called P5+1 -- the United States, Russia, China, France, and Britain plus Germany.

It comes as a U.S. negotiating team led by Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman traveled to Geneva on February 19 for talks with Iranian officials over Tehran’s nuclear activities.
