IAEA refuses to assess Netanyahu’s statement on Iran’s nuclear programMore:http://tass.com/world/1002610

The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), refused to assess the statement of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tehran’s alleged nuclear developments bypassing the agency’s control.

"In line with standard IAEA practice, the IAEA evaluates all safeguards-relevant information available to it. However, it is not the practice of the IAEA to publicly discuss issues related to any such information," the agency said in a statement on its website.

In the report issued in December 2015, "the Agency assessed that, before the end of 2003, an organizational structure was in place in Iran suitable for the coordination of a range of activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device. Although some activities took place after 2003, they were not part of a coordinated effort. The Agency’s overall assessment was that a range of activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device were conducted in Iran prior to the end of 2003 as a coordinated effort, and some activities took place after 2003," it said.

The agency also found out "that these activities did not advance beyond feasibility and scientific studies, and the acquisition of certain relevant technical competences and capabilities." "The same report stated that the Agency had no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009. Based on the Director General’s report, the Board of Governors declared that its consideration of this issue was closed."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the IAEA's very polite way, of saying that Netanyahu had "hoisted with his own petard" by making these accusations against Iran!!
