ElBaradei Unveils West's Stance on Iran
Press TV / ElBaradei Is Inteviewed by Der Spiegel

The former IAEA chief says the West did not want to reach an agreement with Tehran on the nuclear issue and sought to change the establishment in Iran.

“The Americans and the Europeans withheld important documents and information from us. They weren't interested in a compromise with the government in Tehran, but regime change -- by any means necessary,” Mohamed ElBaradei told the Der Spiegel on Tuesday.

The US and its Western allies accuse Iran of seeking to develop nuclear arms, and used this as a pretext to pressure the UN Security Council into adopting a fourth round of sanctions against Tehran in 2010.
