Iran Hiding Its Nuclear Weapons Program

Iran has been blocking IAEA inspectors and ignoring questions about the whereabouts of undeclared nuclear materials.

BY WATCH JERUSALEM STAFF

The United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) expressed "serious concern" on Friday about Iran’s systematic violations of the 2015 nuclear deal and its failure to cooperate with its probe into undeclared nuclear material.

According to two reports sent to member states, Iran refused to give inspectors access to two facilities the agency requested to visit. Iran also refused to answer questions about the use and current whereabouts of possible undeclared nuclear material from the early 2000s.

According to the Wall Street Journal, one of the IAEA reports stated: "The agency notes with serious concern that, for over four months, Iran has denied access to the agency … to two locations and, for almost a year, has not engaged in substantive discussions to clarify agency questions related to possible undeclared nuclear material and nuclear-related activities in Iran."

This is just the latest in a long list of Iranian violations of the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or the nuclear deal. The agreement was intended to slow Iran’s march toward a nuclear weapon by imposing certain restrictions in return for economic incentives. Iran has since violated every restriction outlined in the agreement. In 2018, United States President Donald Trump withdrew America from the JCPOA and imposed sanctions.
