An Iranian official is disputing a new report by the International Atomic Energy Agency, which accuses Iran of beefing up its uranium enrichment program, calling the accusations a political ploy. "Publishing this report while Iran is holding the Non-Aligned Movement meeting does not mean anything other than it was a political move aimed at overshadowing the meeting in Tehran," said Kazem Jalali, a member of the parliament's national security and foreign affairs committee. The report by the U.N. atomic watchdog suggests that, despite threats of an Israeli or U.S. military strike on Tehran's nuclear facilities, Iran is quickly increasing its enrichment capacity at a site in Fordow.
