IAEA to outline further Iranian nuclear progress

Source: AFP

Iran is on the threshold of being able to significantly ramp up production at its most controversial nuclear plant, diplomats expect the UN nuclear agency to say in a new report on Friday.

The International Atomic Energy Agency will outline that despite sanctions, Iran's engineers have now fully fitted out the Fordo enrichment facility, dug into a mountain near the holy city of Qom, envoys told AFP.

The findings will likely be read with alarm in Israel, the Middle East's sole if undeclared nuclear weapons state, which has refused to rule out bombing Iran to stop it from also getting the bomb.

Also taking an interest will be the "P5+1" world powers -- the US, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany -- thought to be about to resume talks in early 2013 at the latest now that the US election is over.
