Safeguards reports circulated to IAEA board

IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei has circulated his latest report on nuclear safeguards in Iran to the Agency´s Board of Governors, the 35-member policymaking body. The report outlines developments since the Director General´s report of 19 November 2008.

The IAEA Board of Governors will discuss the report when it next convenes in Vienna on 2 March.
