B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
B’nai B’rith is disturbed to learn that a new report reveals the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) may have withheld details it uncovered about Iran’s nuclear program as Tehran attempted to bolster its international relations.
We have long been skeptical of any easing of sanctions aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear program. The revelation of this information—strong evidence suggests that Iran has been working toward the ability to produce a nuclear weapon—is cause for concern. It also calls into question the IAEA’s independence.
The report seems to confirm the Iranian regime’s long history of deception.
The IAEA, which has played an important role over recent years in holding Iran accountable, should fully reveal what it knows.
