International outcry over IAEA report on Iran programme

(BBC NEWS) — There has been an international outcry after the IAEA, the UN atomic watchdog, expressed concerns Iran may currently be working on nuclear weapons.

Germany said the report “confirms our great concerns”, while the US warned Iran it faces consequences if it fails to meet international responsibilities.

Iran’s supreme leader denounced the accusations as “baseless”.  Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said: “Our religious beliefs bar us from using such weapons… We do not believe in atomic weapons and are not seeking that.”
