France has repeated its accusation that the UN nuclear watchdog is hiding facts about Iran's atomic activity, just as the body's head issued a strong denial.

International Atomic Energy Agency head Mohamed ElBaradei said he had been dismayed by the "politically motivated and totally baseless accusations".

A foreign ministry spokeswoman insisted Paris had proof that key information was left out of the latest IAEA report.

Earlier today was this:

New Iran sanctions likely after nuclear watchdog says talks at stalemate

A new round of international sanctions against Iran looked almost inevitable today after the head of the UN's nuclear watchdog, Mohamed ElBaradei, said talks with the Islamic republic were at a "stalemate", and the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, appeared to rule out a compromise.

The next few weeks will be interesting, especially with Venezuela joining in to help out the Iranian regime with petrol imports. The French are obviously angry because of the 23 year old French woman who was on trial in Iran a few weeks ago. Russia and China aren't going to be convinced thru' the UN.

Now there's this spat between the IAEA and the French, this is all leading towards a catastrophe with sanctions that will have to be enforced that cannot feasibly be enforced without starting several wars! Do we stop Russian & Chinese ships or let them thru'?
