According to a secret cable, released Monday by Al Jazeera television network, the Israeli spy agency sent a top-secret cable to South Africa's State Security Agency (SSA) in October 2012 which presented a "bottom line" assessment of Iran's nuclear work. In the report, Mossad concluded that Iran was “not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons.”

The document, which is in stark contrast with Israel’s anti-Iran rhetoric, was sent a few weeks after the Israeli premier’s September 2012 address at the UN General Assembly in which he claimed that Iran had reached 70 percent of the way to completing “plans to build a nuclear weapon.”

The Mossad report was published ahead of Netanyahu’s planned address to the U.S. Congress on March 3rd, a move strongly rejected by the Barack Obama administration amid the ongoing nuclear negotiations with Tehran. A similar CIA report, leaked on on February 20, disclosed that Washington tried to mislead the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) about Iran’s nuclear program through the provision of doctored evidence.

The Mossad and CIA's leaked information appears to attest Iran’s argument that it is pursuing non-military goals in its nuclear program. In addition, the IAEA has also conducted numerous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence showing that Iran's civilian nuclear program has been diverted to nuclear weapons production.
