Iran Task Force

The U.N. nuclear agency has created a special Iran Task Force of nuclear weapons experts, intelligence analysts and other specialists focused on probing allegations that Tehran has been or is secretly working on developing atomic arms.

But the force will have no more power regarding inspections of Iran’s known or suspected nuclear sites than previous IAEA inspectors did.
Iran has stonewalled an IAEA probe into its alleged weapons work for more than four years, increasing concerns it has something to hide.
Creating a unit focused on only one country is an unusual move for the IAEA, reflecting the urgency the U.N. nuclear watchdog is attaching to Iran amid fears that it is moving closer to the ability to make nuclear weapons, despite its denial.
