The International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, is preparing a report to prove that Iran’s nuclear programme pursues military ends, according to the French newspaper Le Figaro.
The paper reports that the forthcoming IAEA report on Iran’s nuclear programme will prove the toughest of its kind. The IAEA took a much tougher stand on Iran after Muhammad ElBaradei of Egypt had stepped down as the Agency’s Director-General.
The French periodical claims that he was long suspected of trying to belittle the threat of Iran’s nuclear programme.
Tehran claims, for its part, that its nuclear programme seeks to attain exclusively peaceful objectives, above all, those related to power production.
