The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency says Iran is a “special case” for the agency’s monitoring teams because of suspicions the country is hiding experimental nuclear programs.
Speaking at the opening of an agency conference Monday in Vienna, IAEA chief Yukiya Amano said Iranian officials have not provided the necessary cooperation for the IAEA to confirm that all nuclear material in Iran is for peaceful activities.
Delegates at the week-long IAEA conference are expected to discuss Iran and Syria’s nuclear programs. Arab countries have also succeeded in putting Israel on the group’s agenda for the first time since 1991.
