UN nuclear watchdog presses Iranian regime for answers on uranium traces

The UN nuclear watchdog's top inspector will travel to Tehran next week to press Iranian regime to finally explain the origin of uranium traces found at an undeclared site, the agency's acting chief said on Thursday ( November 21).

Reuters first reported in September that the International Atomic Energy Agency found the uranium traces at the site that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu drew attention to in a speech last year, calling it a "secret atomic warehouse". Tehran has said the site is a carpet-cleaning facility.

Two weeks ago the IAEA confirmed to member states that environmental samples taken at a still unspecified site had shown traces of uranium that was processed but not enriched.

"We have continued our interactions with Iran (regime) since then, but have not received any additional information and the matter remains unresolved," acting IAEA Director General Cornel Feruta told a quarterly meeting of his agency's 35-nation Board of Governors in Vienna.

Feruta told Iranian regime  in September that "time is of the essence" in clearing up the origin of the traces. The IAEA has found that the explanations given by Iranian regime so far have not held water.
