IAEA's ElBaradei says no evidence Iran is making nuclear arms
Vienna, Oct 28, IRNA - There is no evidence that Iran is building nuclear weapons, IAEA Director-General Mohamed ElBaradei said on Sunday.
In a press conference in Washington, he accused US leaders of adding "fuel to the fire" with recent bellicose rhetoric.
"I have not received any information that there is a concrete active nuclear weapons program going on right now."
"Even if Iran were to be working on a nuclear weapon ... they are at least a few years from having such a weapon.
"At this stage we need to continue to work through creative diplomacy ... as I don't see any other solution than diplomacy and inspections."
ElBaradei said if the United States had more information on Iran's nuclear drive than the IAEA, "I would be very happy to receive it and go forward."
"Have we seen Iran having the nuclear material that can readily be used into a weapon? No. Have we seen an active weapons program? No," he said.
ElBaradei said that merely "exchanging rhetoric" would not resolve the Iranian nuclear case.
