Diplomats say tests show no nuclear activity at Iran's site
Tests of soil samples have shown no signs of nuclear activities at a site in
northern Iran, a diplomat in Vienna said Tuesday.
The diplomat said the soil
samples of the Lavizan military establishment showed "negative," meaning that
the samples contained no traces of nuclear materials.
Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has not commented on the results so far. But some
diplomats in Vienna said the results will support Iran's claim that the razed
military site, a former military research laboratory, had nothing to do with
atomic- related activities.
But the United States has suspected the place is
linked to Iran 's nuclear program.
A 35-nation board-of-governors' meeting
earlier this month demanded Iran stop all activities related to uranium
enrichment. It also called on Iran to accelerate cooperation with agency
inspectors probing past and present nuclear activities.
