Iran denies it is building secret nuclear facility

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran is denying an opposition group's claim that it is building a secret nuclear facility west of the capital, the semiofficial Mehr news agency reported on Friday.

The head of Iran's nuclear agency, Ali Akbar Salehi, said the country has no undeclared nuclear sites.

On Thursday, an Iranian opposition group claimed to have discovered a new uranium enrichment plant being built about 75 miles (120 kilometers) west of Tehran and said it was 85 percent complete.

A US government official also disputed the claim by the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran, saying the site did not appear to have a nuclear role. The official said the US has known about the facility for years but has no reason to think it is nuclear.
