"VIENNA: Iran admits to failures in honoring international nuclear safeguards commitments, in a new report filed to the United Nations atomic watchdog, but still denies trying to develop nuclear weapons, the Iranian representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Friday.

The statement to AFP by Ali Akbar Salehi, the Iranian ambassador to the IAEA, was a first indication of what is in the report submitted by Iran Thursday, just a week before the IAEA’s October 31 deadline for the Islamic Republic to prove it is not secretly developing nuclear weapons.

Salehi said there were disclosures in the report of “what could be considered failures” to adhere to the safeguards regime of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), of which Iran is a signatory.'

This is really on the line of "the dog ate my homework" kinda stuff. Iran is stalling so it can blackmail the world when it gets its nukes ready.
