Diplomats expect the International Atomic Energy Agency to approve a toughly worded resolution criticizing Iran for not fully cooperating with the U.N. agency's investigation of its nuclear activities.
The resolution calls on the Islamic Republic to help complete the investigation within a few months. Speaking in Vienna, the chief of Iran's delegation (Hossein Mousavian) said Tehran will continue to cooperate with the U.N. agency despite the critical resolution.
The United States welcomed the draft and U.S. officials again accused Iran of trying to conceal nuclear activities. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher says Iran has gone as far as dismantling entire sites to prevent nuclear inspectors from visiting them. He added that satellite photos show Iran recently razed a facility at Lavizan Shiyan.
Diplomats say the IAEA is looking into the photographs.
