Confidential document from US, other powers, calls for end of UN Iran nuke probe

US, other powers want end of UN Iran nuke probe

VIENNA (AP) -- A document obtained by The Associated Press shows Washington joining five other nations in urging the U.N. atomic agency to close the books on a probe of allegations that Iran worked on nuclear weapons.

The call is contained in a confidential draft resolution prepared for next week's meeting of the 35-nation board of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

A report last week from IAEA chief Yukiya Amano concluded that Tehran did work related to nuclear arms up to 2009.

But the six nations want to move on from past activities that will likely remain murky and push for enactment of a July 14 deal with Iran mandating future constraints on nuclear technologies that Tehran could use for making such weapons.

Iran denies any interest or work on nuclear arms.
