Iran wants UN atomic agency to condemn Israeli drone 'aggression'

Iran has called on the UN atomic agency to condemn an "act of aggression" by Israel for sending, Tehran says, a drone last month to spy on a site which is at the center of its decade-old nuclear dispute with the West.

The Iranian move comes ahead of a meeting next week of the 35-nation board of the International Atomic Energy Agency where Tehran likely faces Israeli and Western criticism for failing to address IAEA concerns about its suspected atomic bomb research.

In late August, Iran said it had shot down an Israeli drone that was heading for its main uranium enrichment site near the central town of Natanz.

Israeli officials declined to comment on the allegation by its arch foe, which the Jewish state and the United States suspect of seeking to develop the capability to assemble nuclear weapons. Iran says it is refining uranium to make fuel for nuclear power plants, not bombs, and says it is Israel's atomic arsenal that threatens peace in the Middle East.
