Iran developing secret nuclear bomb: Foreign Intelligence Report

DUBAI: Top secret files acquired by Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad show a memorandum proving that the Iranian defense ministry was responsible for enriching weapons grade uranium, UK daily The Times reported. The memo, which was handed from the Iranian atomic energy authority to the defense ministry, was among 100,000 files taken by Mossad agents from a Tehran warehouse in January the report added. “What Iran told the International Atomic Energy Agency about its capacities was almost comical compared to what we have here,” said a senior Israeli intelligence officer involved in the analysis of the seized documents. “Iran said there had only been feasibility and scientific studies but what we see is that Iran ran a fully-fledged nuclear weapons program and that it followed directions from the political levels,” he added. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be in Europe from Monday in a bid to rally support from key allies for amending the international nuclear deal with Iran, setting meetings with the leaders of Germany, the UK and France. “I will meet there with three leaders and will discuss two subjects: Iran and Iran,” he said, adding he wanted pressure on Iran’s nuclear program to be “intensified.” “It could be that on this matter there isn’t a consensus right now, but with time, in my opinion, that understanding will be reached,” Netanyahu added.
