The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board of governors formally rebuked Iran, deciding that it was "essential and urgent" that Iran cooperate with the agency's investigation into nuclear material detected at three undeclared sites in Iran. The resolution was more pointed than a similar one passed in June. The U.S. ambassador also signaled for the first time that the United States would consider referring the matter to the U.N. Security Council.
