VIENNA, Austria, (AP) – A senior Iranian official blames the U.S. for his country’s refusal to respond to accusations it tried to make nuclear weapons. He says information provided by Washington on such attempts is fabricated and came three years too late.

Iran’s chief delegate to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Ali Ashgar Soltanieh, also acknowledged Sunday that his country’s uranium enrichment program is experiencing ups and downs. The comment appears to be the first instance of Tehran admitting that its enrichment activities are running into some difficulties.
