In what is destined to be a highly discussed development, especially as the United Nations convenes this week, Israel has accused Iran of testing technology that could only be used for nuclear detonations. From the Jerusalem Post:
A statement from Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz, issued a day before Iranian President Hassan Rouhani — the architect of Tehran's diplomacy with the big powers — was to address the UN General Assembly, said internal neutron sources such as uranium were used in nuclear implosion tests at Parchin.
Israel, his statement said, based its information on "highly reliable information," without elaborating.
During last year's General Assembly of the United Nations, one of the issues that dominated the agenda was Iran's burgeoning nuclear program. At that assembly, newly minted Iranian President Hassan Rouhani continued his so-called charm offensive, which ended with a historic phone call between Rouhani and President Obama, the first conversation between an American and an Iranian head of state in over three decades.
