Vienna, Dec 4, IRNA
The report released by the US national intelligence estimates (NIE) on Monday asserting that Iran has no weapons program confirms validity of the findings of the International Atomic Energy Agency over the past several years.
The report "validates the IAEA's statements over the past years that inspectors have found no concrete evidence of an undeclared nuclear weapons program in Iran," said the agency's official in a statement.
He also confirmed IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei's assessment that Iran did not pose an imminent danger and that there is ample time for negotiations".
At the same time, the IAEA official stressed that Iran still needed to "clarify some important aspects" of its nuclear program, and work actively with the UN watchdog.
