The US urged Iran on Monday to cooperate with a probe into past suspicious nuclear activities but said even full compliance would not be enough to ease international concerns over Teheran's possession of bomb-making technology. The comments by Gregory L. Schulte, chief US delegate to the International Atomic Energy Agency, came as the IAEA's 35-nation board convened on the first day of a session that will focus on Iran's nuclear dossier. Ahead of the meeting, diplomats said that IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei's approach on Iran is leading to US concerns that he has overstepped his authority - a view that Schulte appeared at pains to dispel by praising ElBaradei's attempts to pry answers out of Teheran. But even if Iran does give quick and thorough answers to IAEA questions on former programs that could be linked to a weapons program, "cooperation that gives Iran the wherewithal to build nuclear weapons is not enough," Schulte said.
