Description
 
In 2002, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) began investigating allegations that Iran had conducted clandestine nuclear activities. Ultimately, the agency reported that some of these activities had violated Tehranís IAEA safeguards agreement. The IAEA Board of Governors referred the matter to the U.N. Security Council in Feb. 2006. Since then, the council has adopted five resolutions, the most recent of which (Resolution 1835) was adopted in Sept. 2008. The Security Council has required Iran to cooperate fully with the IAEAís investigation of its nuclear activities, suspend its uranium enrichment program, suspend its construction of a heavywater reactor and related projects, and ratify the Additional Protocol to its IAEA safeguards agreement. However, a June 2009 report from IAEA Director-General Mohamed ElBaradei to the agencyís Board of Governors indicated that Tehran has continued to defy the councilís demands by continuing work on its uranium enrichment program and heavy-water reactor program. Iran has signed, but not ratified, its Additional Protocol. Iran and the IAEA agreed in August 2007 on a work plan to clarify the outstanding questions regarding Tehranís nuclear program. Most of these questions have essentially been resolved, but ElBaradei told the agencyís board in June 2008 that the agency still has questions regarding ďpossible military dimensions to Iranís nuclear programme.Ē The IAEA has reported for some time that it has not been able to make progress on these matters. This report provides a brief overview of Iranís nuclear program and describes the legal basis for the actions taken by the IAEA board and the Security Council.
