(AP) Diplomats say the U.N. nuclear agency is preparing to circulate a report that will detail Iran's progress in expanding atomic activities that could be used to make weapons.
The diplomats say the International Atomic Energy Agency report will be issued later Thursday for distribution among the IAEA's 35 board member nations.
They expect the report to say that Iran has installed hundreds of new machines to enrich uranium at an underground facility heavily fortified against aerial attack.
Enrichment can make both reactor fuel and the core of nuclear warheads, and the underground Fordo plant already has hundreds of centrifuges enriching to a level that is higher than needed for fuel and closer to what is needed to make weapons
Iran denies any interest in nuclear arms.
