Iranian official denies second uranium plant was clandestine

Iranian official denies

A senior Iranian official was quoted by Reuters on Friday as saying that Teheran was not keeping the construction of a second uranium enrichment plant secret. "If it was a covert plant, we would not have informed the [International Atomic Energy] Agency," the unnamed official was quoted as saying. The comment came as the IAEA revealed the Islamic republic's disclosure of a new Iranian nuclear facility 160 kilometers southwest of Teheran.
