Iran: Current Developments and U.S. Policy [Updated April 25, 2003]   [open pdf - 98KB]

"In December 2002, U.S. officials said that Iran is building two previously unknown nuclear sites at Arak and Natanz, which could be used in a nuclear weapons program. A visit by the International Atomic Energy Agency to the Natanz facility on February 21 found that the facility contained a more advanced uranium enrichment program than was expected. On April 23, Administration officials warned Iran not to meddle in post-Saddam Iraq by supporting Shiite Islamist organizations seeking power there, although without specifically threatening military action if Iran defied the warning."
