White House: Iran nuke report expected to echo US concerns

November 7, 2011 21:12

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Monday it expects a UN nuclear agency report this week to echo US concerns about the direction of Iran's nuclear program.

A report by the International Atomic Energy Agency is expected to strengthen suspicions that Tehran is seeking to develop the capability to make atomic bombs and lead to Western calls for further UN sanctions on Iran.

"We certainly expect it to echo and reinforce what we have been saying about Iran's behavior and its failure to live up to its international obligations," White House spokesman Jay Carney said. "It will I'm sure echo our concern about Iran's nuclear program."
