IAEA publishes Iran agreement on clearing up nuclear program suspicions

Iran has offered some cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency in its probe of an alleged secret uranium processing project linked by US intelligence to a nuclear arms program - even while dismissing such claims as "baseless allegations." The pledge was contained in a memorandum reached between Iran and the IAEA and published Monday on the agency's Web site at the request of Teheran's mission to the agency. In it, Teheran also outlined its timetable for providing other sensitive information sought by the IAEA in its probe of more than two decades of nuclear activity by the Islamic republic, most of it clandestine until revealed more than four years ago. There was no official comment from the IAEA.
