April 2, 2008

VIENNA, Austria (AP) - Diplomats say that China has given the U.N. nuclear watchdog intelligence linked to Tehran's alleged attempts to make nuclear arms.

The development is surprising because Beijing, along with Russia, has opposed U.S.-led attempts to impose harsh penalties on Tehran over its nuclear defiance of the U.N. Security Council.

Any Chinese decision to provide information to the International Atomic Energy Agency thus seems to reflect growing international unease over Iran's atomic agenda.

The diplomats spoke to The Associated Press earlier this week and Wednesday. They asked for anonymity because their information is confidential. (Source)
