UN report: Iran work "specific" to nuclear armsIranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, waves, as he arrives to attend an open session of parliament in Tehran, Iran, Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011. (Credit: AP/Vahid Salemi)

VIENNA (AP) — The U.N. nuclear atomic energy agency says that Iran is suspected of conducting secret experiments whose sole purpose can only be the development of nuclear arms.

The conclusion is contained in a restricted International Atomic Energy Agency report obtained by The Associated Press Tuesday, shortly after it was circulated to the IAEA’s 35-nation board and to the U.N. Security Council.

The report says that while some of the suspected secret nuclear work by Iran can have peaceful purposes, “others are specific to nuclear weapons.”

A 13-page attachment to the agency’s Iran report details intelligence and IAEA research that shows Tehran working on all aspects of research toward making a nuclear weapon, including fitting a warhead onto a missile.
