Topic: U.N. watchdog set to close nuclear weapons probe of Iran


By Francois Murphy and Shadia Nasralla VIENNA (Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog is expected on Tuesday to close its 12-year investigation into whether Iran had a secret nuclear weapons program, a key step toward normalizing Tehran's international status after a landmark deal with major powers. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) produced a report earlier this month that strongly suggested Iran did have a nuclear weapons program for years up until 2003, but the international response has been muted, even from the United States, which had long accused Tehran of lying. Iran has always denied plans to develop nuclear weapons.
