A top Iranian official handed information on his country's nuclear program to the International Atomic Energy Agency late Thursday in a last-minute move to temper the critical tone of a report to be sent Friday to the UN Security Council. Diplomats, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss confidential details of the IAEA's Iran probe, said they had no details of what Iran's deputy nuclear chief, Mohammad Saeedi, had brought to the table on Thursday. Still, they characterized the meeting between Saeedi and Olli Heinonen, the IAEA's deputy director general in charge of Iran's nuclear file, as unlikely to blunt the report's main finding - that Tehran has ignored council requests to suspend uranium enrichment. Deep differences over Iran persisted within the council on the eve of its receiving the report Friday, with Russia and China blocking US-led attempts to demand rather than request that Iran comply.
