The UN nuclear agency have approved a resolution that ends a decade-long probe of allegations that Iran worked on atomic weapons.
The probe had to be formally closed as part of an Iran-six nation deal restricting Iran’s current nuclear programmes which could be used to make such weapons, in exchange for sanctions relief for Tehran.
The move by the 35-nation board of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) comes after last month’s IAEA assessment that Iran worked in the past on elements of a nuclear weapon.
An EU statement reflected the will to move on among board members.
Unlike previous EU statements, it avoided criticism of Iran, saying only “we note” the IAEA conclusion.
Iran denies any work on, or interest in, atomic weapons.
