WASHINGTON (AFP) – Chief UN atomic watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei said Sunday he had no evidence that Iran is building nuclear weapons and accused US leaders of adding “fuel to the fire” with recent bellicose rhetoric.

“I have not received any information that there is a concrete active nuclear weapons program going on right now,” the director of the International Atomic Energy Agency told CNN.

Even if Iran were to be working on a nuclear weapon … they are at least a few years from having such a weapon,” he said, citing assessments by US officials themselves.

“At this stage we need to continue to work through creative diplomacy … as I don’t see any other solution than diplomacy and inspections,” ElBaradei said.
