VIENNA (AP) — Iran, in a confidential letter posted Friday on an internal website of the U.N. nuclear watchdog, said its fear of attack from the U.S. and Israel has prompted it to decide to withhold information from the agency.
The International Atomic Energy Agency — the U.N. monitor — has in turn told Iran that it is defying the 35-nation board of the agency with its move and urged it to reconsider. Both the Iranian document and the confidential IAEA response were made available to The Associated Press.
