In November the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) expressed

“serious concerns” about credible information that

“indicates that Iran has carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device.”

It also suggests that some activities relevant to the development of such a device may still be ongoing. We share these concerns and continue to call for full implementation by Iran of United Nations Security Council and IAEA Board of Governors Resolutions.
