"Egypt admits failing to report nuclear research to UN watchdog agency."
Egypt admitted Thursday to failing to report a "number of research experiments" to the UN atomic energy agency, after diplomats said the agency was
investigating an Egyptian lab that could be used to make plutonium, a nuclear weapons material.
But "Egypt is cooperating with the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency)" and feels the "research experiments and activities ... most of which
took place in the distant past are consistent with the NPT," the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, the Egyptian embassy said in a statement released
The statement said stronger safeguards measures by the IAEA "since the 1990's have resulted in not reporting to the agency, in an appropriate and
timely manner, a number of research experiments and activities."
Egyptian ambassador Ramzy Ezzeldin Ramzy told AFP it was a case that with "strengthened safeguards, countries sometimes don't know what they are
required to report."
He said news reports of Egyptian safeguards failures were "exaggerated" and that Egypt has a strictly peaceful nuclear program."
Perhaps Islam has already discovered the same security that hid the US creating the first "nukes" will work to "hide" thier progress also.
Egypt provides the Plutonium, Pakstain the technology, Iran the missiles and launch sites and the "wild card" N Korea the assembly.
More stories of seemingly unrelated "research" are emerging.
