          referred to the Committee on International Relations

_______________________________________________________________________

                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
 Expressing the deep concern of Congress regarding the failure of the 
     Islamic Republic of Iran to adhere to its obligations under a 
 safeguards agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency and 
  the engagement by Iran in activities that appear to be designed to 
                        develop nuclear weapons.

Whereas environmental sampling by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) 
        at Iran's Natanz nuclear facility revealed the presence of 2 types of 
        highly enriched uranium that can be used to develop nuclear weapons;
Whereas the traces of highly-enriched uranium detected by the IAEA at the Natanz 
        facility and the Kalaye Electric Company could indicate that Iran has 
        been secretly attempting to produce weapons-grade uranium at these 
        facilities;
Whereas, in March 2003, the Director of the IAEA announced that Iran was 
        constructing a facility to enrich uranium, a key component of advanced 
        nuclear weapons;
Whereas, on January 1, 1968, Iran signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of 
        Nuclear Weapons, done at Washington, London, and Moscow July 1, 1968, 
        and entered into force March 5, 1970 (the ``Nuclear Non-Proliferation 
        Treaty'');
Whereas the June 6, 2003, report of the Director General of the IAEA expressed 
        concern over the failure of the Government of Iran to report material, 
        facilities, and activities at its nuclear facilities, including those 
        that have the potential to enrich uranium and develop nuclear weapons, 
        in contravention of its obligations under the safeguards agreement it 
        signed in connection with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty;
Whereas the Board of Governors of the IAEA adopted a resolution on September 12, 
        2003, that calls on Iran to provide the IAEA a full declaration of all 
        imported material and components relevant to the uranium enrichment 
        program, to grant unrestricted access, including environmental sampling, 
        to the IAEA, to resolve questions regarding the conclusion of the IAEA 
        experts who tested gas centrifuges in that country, to provide complete 
        information regarding the conduct of uranium conversion experiments, and 
        to provide such other information and explanations and take such other 
        steps as the IAEA determines necessary to resolve by October 31, 2003, 
        all outstanding issues involving Iran's nuclear materials and nuclear 
        activities;
Whereas, in June 2003, Iran conducted a successful test of the 800-mile range 
        Shahab-3 missile, and Iran is also seeking to produce a 1,200-mile 
        Shahab-4 missile;
Whereas Iran's known support for terrorism and the proliferation of ballistic 
        missiles and technology, coupled with its nuclear weapons program, poses 
        a serious national security threat to the United States and United 
        States allies in the region; and
Whereas, by signing the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, signatories such as 
        Iran that are not declared nuclear powers commit themselves to 
        abstaining from the acquisition of nuclear weapons, preventing the 
        spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, promoting cooperation 
        in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, and achieving nuclear 
        disarmament: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That Congress--
            (1) deplores the development by Iran of a nuclear weapons 
        program and the failure of the Government of Iran to report 
        material, facilities, and activities to the International 
        Atomic Energy Commission in contravention of its obligations 
        under the safeguards agreement it signed in connection with the 
        Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, done at 
        Washington, London, and Moscow July 1, 1968, and entered into 
        force March 5, 1970 (hereafter in this resolution referred to 
        as the ``Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty'');
            (2) concurs with the view of the Department of State, as 
        delivered in testimony to the U.S.-Israel Joint Parliamentary 
        Committee on September 17, 2003, by the Assistant Secretary of 
        State for Verification and Compliance that the explanations 
        provided by the Government of Iran for its nuclear activities 
        are not credible;
            (3) concurs with the conclusion reached in the Department 
        of State's Annual Report on Adherence to and Compliance with 
        Arms Control and Nonproliferation Agreements and Commitments 
        that Iran is pursuing a program to develop nuclear weapons;
            (4) calls on the President to use all appropriate means to 
        prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, including--
                    (A) urging the Government of Iran to accept in full 
                the resolution adopted by the Board of Governors of the 
                International Atomic Energy Agency on September 12, 
                2003 (hereafter in this resolution referred to as the 
                ``IAEA resolution''), that calls on Iran to--
                            (i) provide the Agency a full declaration 
                        of all imported material and components 
                        relevant to the uranium enrichment program;
                            (ii) grant unrestricted access, including 
                        environmental sampling, to the Agency;
                            (iii) resolve questions regarding the 
                        conclusion of the Agency experts who tested gas 
                        centrifuges in that country;
                            (iv) provide complete information regarding 
                        the conduct of uranium conversion experiments; 
                        and
                            (v) provide such other information and 
                        explanations and take such other steps as the 
                        Agency determines necessary to resolve by 
                        October 31, 2003, all outstanding issues 
                        involving Iran's nuclear materials and nuclear 
                        activities;
                    (B) taking such diplomatic measures as are 
                necessary to encourage other nations, especially 
                Russia, to urge the Government of Iran to fully and 
                immediately comply with the such resolution; and
                    (C) working with the United Nations and other 
                nations to urge the Government of Iran to sign the 
                Model Additional Protocol to give the International 
                Atomic Energy Agency greater access in Iran to ensure 
                that--
                            (i) no undeclared facilities exist in Iran; 
                        and
                            (ii) no materials or technologies have been 
                        diverted from safeguarded facilities in Iran;
            (5) calls on Russia to--
                    (A) use all appropriate means to urge Iran to 
                accept in full the IAEA resolution; and
                    (B) suspend all nuclear cooperation with Iran until 
                Iran fully and completely complies with the IAEA 
                resolution;
            (6) calls on member states of the United Nations to join 
        the United States in preventing the Government of Iran from 
        continuing to pursue and develop programs or facilities that 
        could be used in a nuclear weapons program;
            (7) calls on the International Atomic Energy Agency to--
                    (A) find Iran in violation of its commitments as a 
                signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty; and
                    (B) refer the matter to the United Nations Security 
                Council if Iran fails to meet its obligations to the 
                International Atomic Energy Agency by October 31, 2003;
            (8) calls on the United Nations Security Council to 
        immediately undertake consideration of--
                    (A) the threat to international peace and security 
                posed by Iran's nuclear weapons program; and
                    (B) the passage of a Security Council resolution or 
                the taking of other actions that may be necessary to 
                impose diplomatic and economic sanctions against Iran 
                if it fails to meet its obligations to the 
                International Atomic Energy Agency by October 31, 2003; 
                and
            (9) calls on the Government of Iran to cease all efforts to 
        acquire nuclear fuel cycle capabilities until it is able to 
        verify that it is not engaged in a clandestine nuclear weapons 
        program by--
                    (A) coming into complete and verifiable compliance 
                with its obligations under the IAEA resolution, 
                including the prompt and unconditional implementation
