The majority of the board of the International Atomic Energy Agency has voted on Friday to censure Iran for its nuclear defiance. Diplomats inside the meeting say 25 of the 34 IAEA board nations present have voted for a resolution backed by the US, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. The resolution Friday criticizes Iran for defying a UN Security Council ban on uranium enrichment - the source of both nuclear fuel and the fissile core of warheads. It also censures it for secretly building a uranium enrichment facility, and demands that it immediately suspend construction. It notes that the IAEA cannot confirm that Teheran's nuclear program is exclusively geared toward peaceful uses. It expresses "serious concern" that Iran may be hiding a military nuclear program.
