Iran's suspension of enrichment activities meets IAEA demands

[JURIST] Iran's promise to suspend its uranium enrichment activities (see this report on JURIST's Paper Chase) will satisfy some demands of the International Atomic Energy Agency, according to a confidential IAEA report. In the report, Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the UN watchdog agency, writes that all nuclear material declared by Iran to the IAEA has been accounted for "and therefore we can say that such material is not diverted to prohibited (weapons) activities." However, ElBaradei adds that the agency is "not yet in the position to conclude that there are no undeclared nuclear materials" that could have been used for a weapons program. AP has more. The IAEA has background on its negotiations with Iran.
