Myanmar not after Nukes

world Updated: Sep 24, 2010 01:14 IST

Myanmar told the UN nuclear watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency on Thursday that allegations it was trying to develop atomic bombs were unfounded and its nuclear activities had only peaceful ends.

A Norwegian-based exile group said in June that Myanmar had a secret program dedicated to acquiring nuclear weapons, following up on similar allegations by defectors from the reclusive, military-ruled country. The IAEA had said then that it was looking into the report.
