Iraq questioning Iran’s plan to build a nuclear plant near border


The Iraqi government on Monday called for “explanations” from the UN nuclear watchdog on a reported plan for Iran to build a nuclear reactor near the border between the two countries. “The Iraqi government has asked for explanations from the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) on information concerning the construction of an Iranian nuclear reactor near the border with Iraq,” it said. “Iraq will take the necessary diplomatic measures, in cooperation with the IAEA, to suppress the dangers and complications arising from the construction of nuclear installations near the border,” it said in an official statement.
