Iran: Terror group provided false info to US on Iranian nuclear activities

Iran's UN ambassador on Monday accused a group on the US terror blacklist of fabricating allegations that Iran tried to make nuclear weapons in the 1990s. Ambassador Mohammad Khazee insisted that Teheran has resolved all outstanding issues about its nuclear program and should not face any new UN sanctions. He indicated that the United States was getting unreliable intelligence from Iranian opposition groups. The government believes "baseless" information provided to the UN nuclear watchdog agency by the US just a few days before its latest report came from an Iranian exile group that helped Saddam Hussein during the war, he said. "I'm afraid to say that, according to my information, some of these allegations were produced or fabricated by a terrorist group, which are listed as a terrorist group in the United States and somewhere else in Europe," Khazee said in an interview with The Associated Press.
