Iran ambassador claims nuclear report fabricated

Iran ambassador claims nuclear report fabricated

Iran's ambassador to the United Nations said that an Iranian opposition group is feeding fabricated evidence to Washington that purports to show the Tehran government tried to produce nuclear weapons.
Ambassador Mohammad Khazee said in an interview Monday with The Associated Press that the U.S. is getting unreliable intelligence from the Mujahedeen Khalq, which was allied with Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq. The U.S. and European Union list it as a terrorist group.
The U.N. Security Council, however, is expected to approve a third round of sanctions against Iran for its defiance of a council demand that it suspend uranium enrichment until it has allayed suspicions about its nuclear program.
