Iran disputes atomic arms evidence

IAEA: Iran disputes atomic arms evidence - AP

The International Atomic Energy Agency's report on Iran's nuclear appears to reach some confusing conclusions. On one hand the IAEA says that Iran has not stopped trying to enrich uranium, but the report also shows no evidence that Iran is trying to make nuclear weapons, despite claims from the US and Israel. On that second part, the claims that Iran is trying to produce nuclear weapons the IAEA report (according to the Associated Press) states that information given by Tehran [regarding weapons programs] is either "consistent with its findings (or) ... not inconsistent with its findings." Clear answer? No, I didn't think so either.

The United States wants the UN to approve a new round of sanctions against Iran. Britain and France on Thursday introduced a resolution — with support from the United States, Russia, China and Germany — that would expand and toughen travel bans and the freeze the assets of Iranian officials linked to their nuclear program.
