[Updated at 4:26 p.m.] Clinton also said that the United States will release numbers on the number of nuclear weapons it has in its arsenal and the number of such weapons dismantled in the past two decades.
Clinton told the United Nations that the release of the information will send a "clear, unmistakable signal" that the United States is doing its part to comply with the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.
[Posted at 4:24 p.m] Iran "will do whatever it can to divert attention from its own record and to attempt to evade accountability," U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday at the opening of a conference on nuclear non-proliferation.
Clinton called Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's comments at the conference earlier in the day "the same tired faults and sometimes wild accusations" against the United States and other countries.
The Islamic republic has continuously defied the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency and its Security Council, Clinton said, adding that Iran was the "only country in this hall that has been found by the IAEA board of governors to be currently in noncompliance with its nuclear safeguards obligations."
She called on Ahmadinejad and his regime "to join with all the other delegations represented at this meeting to go ahead and fulfill our international obligations and work toward the goal of a safer world."
