The international atomic energy Agency closed the decades-long investigation into suspicions that Iran is developing nuclear weapons.
Tuesday, 15 December, the IAEA Board of governors, composed of 35 States, unanimously approved a resolution on the closure of the investigation.
The vote took place after IAEA chief Yukiya Amano provided the Board a final report, which, as stated by Amano, contains clear answers to the question about whether Iran developed nuclear weapons.
The experts concluded that before 2003, Iran conducted research that could be related to the development of a nuclear explosive device. However, these activities, as emphasized in the IAEA, did not go beyond scientific research.
In the resolution adopted by the Council, said: «the IAEA does not have sufficient evidence the development of nuclear weapons by Iran since 2009».
The resolution is the final step in the «road map» to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue. The next step, according to Amano should be the preparation for the implementation of the joint comprehensive plan of action. which was adopted in Vienna in summer.
