Europe is reportedly ignoring intelligence reports that point to Iran’s growing nuclear capability.

Europe is reportedly ignoring intelligence reports that point to Iran’s growing nuclear capability.

German intelligence reports are accusing Iran of actively seeking the material to build a nuclear advice but both the European powers and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are apparently turning a blind eye to the mounting crisis, Fox News reported Saturday.

Fox News assessed some of the German intelligence reports that are sounding alarm bells by warning “against this background [of proliferation], weapons of mass destruction continued to be a powerful political instrument during the reporting period, which could shake the stability of the entire state structure in both regional and international crisis situations.” (RELATED: Iran Surpasses Nuclear Fuel Stockpile Limit, State Media Reports)

The report suggested “in particular, states such as Iran, North Korea, Pakistan and Syria attempted to acquire and redistribute such weapons in the context of proliferation, for example by concealing transport routes via third countries.”

The documents say that rogue states are gathering material through academics who visit foreign counties ostensibly to promote learning but are acting as procurement conduits for their governments.

The findings clearly call Iran a “country of risk” that is “making efforts to supplement its arsenal of conventional weapons with weapons of mass destruction.”

Fox News inquired if the IAEA had assessed any of the German intelligence reports. A spokesman for the group declined to comment.
