Rumsfeld: Iran Is Building Nuclear Weapons

Thursday, 12 June 2003 12:00 AM

Although the intelligence community does not believe Iran has nuclear weapons now, "they do have a very active program and are likely to have nuclear weapons in a relatively short period of time," Rumsfeld said, according to the New York Times.

In Washington, a senior official said the administration had asked the International Atomic Energy Agency to refer Iran's nuclear arms program to the U.N. Security Council at a board meeting on Monday.

The agency's report found Iran had failed to declare the existence of facilities, including a heavy-water research reactor, that could enable it to produce nuclear weapons.

Rumsfeld is on a four-stop tour that began in Portugal and is due to end at a NATO meeting in Brussels today.
