The United Nations inspectors have found new signs of unspoken nuclear activities in Islamic Republic of Iran, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The news agency said three diplomats briefed on the fresh discovery, raising new questions about the scope of the country’s atomic ambitions.
“Samples taken from two sites during inspections in the fall by the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency contained traces of radioactive material, the diplomats said, that could indicate Iran has undertaken work on nuclear weapons, based on where it was found,” the report said.
Iran blocked IAEA inspectors from checking for seven months last year.
Tehran constantly has been denying that it has sought to make an atomic bomb. There was no immediate comment from Iranian government on the new findings.
