No proof of nuclear weapons in Iran, IAEA head says

International Atomic Energy Agency head Mohammed ElBaradei said Tuesday that he has seen no proof that Iran is developing a weapons program, but added that he was not certain that the country's intentions are entirely peaceful. As reported on JURIST's Paper Chase, the IAEA Board of Governors is currently considering a resolution that will impose a deadline on Iran to show that it does not have a nuclear weapons program.

The US is calling for tough language in the draft resolution, including a demand for "complete, immediate and unrestricted access" to all sites and information requested by the IAEA. The Guardian has more on ElBaradei's comments on Iran. AP has details of the draft resolution. The IAEA has background on its negotiations with Iran.
