Report: US Pressing IAEA on Iran Nuclear Info


The United States is pressing the International Atomic Energy Agency to reveal data and documents on Iran's nuclear program, and especially nuclear tests Iran is said to be conducting. The New York Times reported Sunday that the push is part of President Barack H. Obama's further attempts to isolate Iran in the wake of the plot revealed last week to conduct attacks against the Israeli and Saudi embassies in the U.S.

Officials quoted in the report said that the documents posed several “serious questions” about Iran's nuclear program, and was likely to revive the debate on possible military action on Iran's nuclear program.
