SANTIAGO - The United States hopes the UN atomic watchdog will be more detailed about its concerns Iran is covertly developing nuclear missiles in a report due out next month, a senior US diplomat said on Thursday.

But it is too early to say if the report about Iran's uranium enrichment program could prompt Tehran's referral to the UN Security Council, Glyn Davies, the US envoy to the watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, told reporters in Santiago on the first stop of a Latin American trip to study uses of nuclear power.

"We expect the IAEA to begin to get more explicitly into the issue of what is called the possible military dimensions of the Iranian nuclear program," Davies said. "I hope what we'll see from the IAEA is sort of a sharpening of the case."

"We'll see whether there's enough there for further action by the board of governors of the IAEA," referring to the possibility of reporting Iran to the UN Security Council.
