IAEA exposes nature of Iran nuclear program: US
Washington: The White House welcomed a resolution on Iran`s nuclear program on Friday by the UN nuclear watchdog, and said it will increase pressure on Tehran to abandon its drive for an atomic bomb.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the International Atomic Energy Agency resolution of increasing concern about Iran`s atomic work had exposed "the hollowness of Iran`s claims" that its nuclear program was for purely civilian purposes.
"The United States will continue this pressure until Iran chooses to depart from its current path of international isolation, both in concert with our partners as well as unilaterally," he said in a statement.
