The International Atomic Energy Agency has begun a two-day meeting in Vienna to hear the European case on Iran's nuclear program.

The 35-nation I.A.E.A. board is discussing a European draft resolution that calls on the agency to forward to the United Nations Security Council key reports raising doubts about the nature of Iran's nuclear activity.

The Security Council can impose sanctions, but the draft resolution says any council action on Iran would be delayed until the next I.A.E.A. meeting in early March. That language is a concession to Russia and China, which have been urging a diplomatic resolution of the dispute.

Iran has threatened to resume full-scale uranium enrichment and curtail U.N. inspections of its nuclear sites if it is referred to the Security Council.

The European Union and the United States accuse Tehran of secretly trying to build an atomic bomb. Iran denies the charge.
