Iran fails to pass IAEA resolution prohibiting attacks on its nuclear facilities

Iran has failed to enlist the support of developing countries at the IAEA for its proposed ban of attacks on nuclear sites, diplomats reported Thursday.

 

Tehran wanted the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to pass a resolution prohibiting armed attacks or threats of armed attacks on nuclear facilities in operation or under construction. But the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), comprised of developing countries, refused to support this proposal, leaving open the question about the support Iran could get at the general meeting. (AFP)
