IAEA Report - Iranian Nuclear Program

International Atomic Energy Agency
RE: USNSC on matters related Iranian nuclear research

Mr. President,
The IAEA investigation team has reached a conclusion on its investigation based on evidence gathered, information provided by the Iranian government, and an official visit on the destroyed Qom site. It is view of this investigation team that the Iranian government may have possessed sufficient technology and capabilities to successfully research nuclear weapons in the Qom facility. However, with a complete destruction of the facility, there is no conclusive evidence to suggest that the Qom facility housed a nuclear weapon research lab. Therefore, it is entirely based on speculation but with reasonable and probable grounds that the nuclear facility in Qom would have been crucial to the Iranian nuclear weapons programme.
Experts have speculated that if Iran does have nuclear capabilities, it would be extremely short-range and in light of the current situation, Israel would be the state under most immediate threat.
