The controversy over Iran's nuclear program came to feed the global alarm yesterday when the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed for the first time, in a detailed report, which the Islamic Republic of Iran had made progress in developing an atomic weapon.The detailed report of the nuclear agency of the United Nations (UN), published yesterday in Vienna, slogan for the first time that agency inspectors have credible information, and increasingly conclusive evidence that Iran is seeking to achieve, in secret, capabilities to develop nuclear weapons.According to the IAEA, which for eight years investigating Iranian nuclear activities, the Islamic republic has already produced nearly five tons of enriched uranium, more than enough to make several bombs.The report also specifies that the Iranians already have 73.7 kilos of uranium enriched up to 20%, which intend to use in a reactor to produce isotopes for civilian for the fight against cancer.However, experts warn that increased purity come very close to Iran's ability to produce uranium enriched above 80%, needed for a nuclear device. Since 2006, then the suspicion of Western powers, the Security Council of UN demands that Iran suspend enrichment as a confidence building measure, a claim Tehran denies the claim that is entitled to produce such materials.
The report we received yesterday the Member States of the organism and the Security Council of the United Nations explains with accuracy and detail never seen before nuclear work Iran has been or is developing and can only be for military purposes. This is the first time the UN publicly expressed suspicion that Iran is carrying out secret activities of this type.The document signed by the director general of IAEA, Yukiya Amano, also highlights the work in the development of an "own design" and buying information on a clandestine group, referring to the network of Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, who for he sold nuclear materials and expertise to third countries, like North Korea or Libya.The confirmation by the UN of Iranian ambitions to build a nuclear arsenal coincided with a moment of maximum tension in the Middle East, where Israeli media speculated in recent days with a possible military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities. Israel considers a threat to its existence, the eventual Iranian nuclear arsenal
However, the crudeness of the report away for the moment the possibility of Israel attacking Iran, said last night two Israeli television.This report will allow Israel to wait "a few weeks or months" to see if the international community decides to take "crippling sanctions" including the Central Bank's total boycott of Iranian oil exports, said the private channels 2 and 10 , quoting sources from the office of Prime Minister and Foreign Ministry.After the publication of the report in Austria, the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a Holocaust denier who once argued that Israel should be wiped off the map, warned that Iran will not retreat a step in its nuclear program and again denied that Tehran intends to have nuclear weapons.
