Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi
Mohammad El Baradei, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency in an interview with Al Jazeera said: "The regime in Tehran must know that the international community's patience where their nuclear program is concerned has run out. Tehran's regime has violated it's commitments to the NPT and if they do not show more willingness to cooperate, their dossier will be referred to the U.N. Security Council."

El Baradei stressed that the Islamic Republic kept it's nuclear pursuits a secret for 20 years and said: "The problem with the regime's nuclear issues is that it's like the top of the mountain...we do not see the rest of the mountain."
