VIENNA - Iran has sharply reduced its most sensitive nuclear stockpile in implementing an interim pact with world powers and has begun engaging with a long-stalled IAEA investigation into suspected atom bomb research, the UN nuclear agency said on Friday.



The findings, in a quarterly report by the International Atomic Energy Agency, are likely to be welcomed by the six powers that are trying to negotiate a long-term deal with Iran on ending a decade-old dispute over its nuclear program.

Iran rejects Western allegations that it has been trying to develop the capability to build nuclear weapons.
