ElBaradei Says Iran Moving in Right Direction

VOA News - 06 May 2004

The head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog says Iran is moving in the right direction in disclosing details of its nuclear program. However, Mohammed ElBaradei warned, in his words, "the world is not going to wait forever" for full disclosure from Iranian officials. He made the comments to a French parliamentary committee Thursday in Paris.

A month ago, Iran agreed to accelerate cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Mr. ElBaradei said then that Tehran would provide crucial information needed to resolve outstanding issues no later than the middle of this month.

The IAEA is still waiting for an explanation to why it found weapons-grade uranium in Iran. Tehran has maintained that its nuclear programs are for peaceful purposes.

The U.N. nuclear agency's board of governors is set to meet again in June to discuss the Iranian issue.
