Iran Fails to Meet IAEA Deadline on Nuclear Program

Iran has failed to meet a deadline for addressing UN concerns about suspected nuclear bomb research, but it could still act to influence a key report due next week, diplomatic sources told Reuters on Wednesday.

The sources, who follow the nuclear issue but declined to be identified, said they had seen no indications so far that Tehran had replied in substance to questions from the International Atomic Energy Agency by the agreed August 25 date.

They suggested, however, that there was still time for Iran to provide information in the coming days in order to avoid any negative impression in the IAEA's quarterly report.
