Tehran has agreed to address by Aug. 25 some issues related to a long-stalled IAEA investigation into suspected Iranian atomic bomb research, the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency said on Wednesday.
In a potentially important step forward in the IAEA's efforts to advance its investigation, it said Iran would exchange information "with respect to the allegations related to the initiation of high explosives, including the conduct of large-scale high-explosives experimentation in Iran".
The issue was part of a landmark report issued by the IAEA in 2011 that included a trove of intelligence information pointing to past work in Iran that could be relevant for the development of nuclear weapons. Iran denies having worked on a nuclear weapons capability in any form.
