Nov 2011 IAEA Iran Report: Another Thought

Before I leave on travel, during which I shan’t blog, I wanted to point out one more item from the “recent IAEA report”: on Iran.

Paragraph 35 of the Annex says:

bq. In an interview in 2007 with a member of the clandestine nuclear supply network, *the Agency was told that Iran had been provided with nuclear explosive design information.* From information provided to the Agency during that interview, the Agency is concerned that *Iran may have obtained more advanced design information than the information identified in 2004 as having been provided to Libya by the nuclear supply network.*

This, as far as I recall, is the first reference to Iran’s acquisition of such design info in an official publication. The 2007 “NIE”: doesn’t say anything like that.

Have a good weekend.
