Iran's Nuclear Program: Recent Developments [August 15, 2003]   [open pdf - 38KB]

"Iran may be poised to clear one of the biggest technical hurdles in a nuclear weapons program -- production of fissile material (enriched uranium in this case). In June, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General ElBaradei issued a report stating that Iran did not meet all of its obligations under its nuclear safeguards agreement pursuant to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), but stopped short of reporting non-compliance. This report, which will be updated as needed, analyzes the findings of the IAEA report and their significance for a possible nuclear weapons program. See also CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report RL30551, 'Iran: Arms and Weapons of Mass Destruction Suppliers'."
