Iran agrees to explain nuclear detonators to UN

TEHRAN : Iran agreed Sunday to clarify to the UN atomic agency its need for detonators used in a nuclear device, as part of a probe into allegations of its past weapons work. The move is part of seven new steps agreed between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency to increase transparency over Tehran’s controversial nuclear drive. And it appears to be the first time in years Iran has agreed to tackle IAEA suspicions that its nuclear work prior to 2003 had “possible military dimensions”.
The development comes as Iran is set to resume nuclear talks with world powers later this month, after clinching an initial accord in November to curb uranium enrichment and open up nuclear facilities to allay concerns Tehran is seeking to acquire atomic weapons. The IAEA said Iran agreed to provide “information for the agency to assess Iran’s need  for the development of EBW detonators.”
