Israel has condemned as unacceptably slow Iran's cooperation with a U.N. watchdog inquiry into suspected atomic bomb research and accused Tehran of providing "false" explanations for its disputed activities.At a weekly board meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said Iran had finally begun to engage with an investigation into allegations that it has worked on designing a nuclear warhead.Western envoys to the IAEA cautiously welcomed the development, calling for Tehran to pick up the pace of its cooperation, but Israel's ambassador suggested Iran was just trying to buy time while pressing on with its nuclear work.Widely believed to be the Middle East's only nuclear-armed power, Israel sees Iran's atomic programme as a direct threat and has in the past warned it could carry out unilateral strikes on Iran's nuclear sites.
