VIENNA, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- "Credible" evidence showed that Iran has engaged in projects and experiments relevant to the development of nuclear weapons, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Tuesday in its latest report on the country's nuclear program.

"The information indicates that Iran has carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device," said IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano in the report.

After strict, comprehensive and reliable evaluation on owned extensive information, IAEA believed that Iran had carried out "organized and systematical" activities "specific to nuclear weapons" at least until the end of 2003, the report said.

The report also hinted that Iran probably was still conducting works related to nuclear weapons development until the end of last year, including trial producing of related components, tests and experiments.

Some of these activities are possibly still in progress, the report said.
