The U.N. atomic watchdog chief called Monday on Iran to cooperate more in a probe into alleged nuclear weapons activity, a key part in a hoped-for historic deal with world powers.The IAEA, which conducts regular inspections of Iran's declared nuclear facilities, will have a beefed-up role if negotiators can finalize a framework deal by a June 30 deadline.The IAEA also wants Iran to answer claims that before 2003, and possibly since, its nuclear program had "possible military dimensions" -- which in other words means conducting research into making a nuclear weapon.In Lausanne Iran undertook to join around 120 other countries in applying this protocol, which will give the IAEA additional access to sites -- including military bases -- where it suspects there may be nuclear material not declared by Iran.
