IAEA Chief: Iran Refuses to Cooperate

Director-General Yukiya Amano of the International Atomic Energy Agency said, Tuesday, that he was worried about Iran's refusal to cooperate in negotiations about the Tehran government's nuclear development program.

Interviewed by the London-based Ash-Sharq Il-Awsat daily, Amano said that no real results have been achieved in nearly a year since the start of contacts between the agency and the Islamic Republic, which could lead to an escalation if Iran does not act according to international law against the production of nuclear weapons and does not allow inspectors to examine its nuclear activities.
