US, UK, France Accuse Iran of Covert Nuclear Plant
Saturday, 26 September 2009

US President Barack Obama accused Iran on Friday of building a secret nuclear fuel plant for several years and demanded that Tehran comply with international rules on nuclear nonproliferation.

Obama went public with the charge in a joint appearance with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy at a Group of 20 summit in Pittsburgh, sharpening a standoff with Iran over its disputed nuclear program.

Obama called Iran's activities "a direct challenge" to the nuclear nonproliferation regime and said it was time for Tehran to act immediately to restore the confidence of the international community.
