TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's atomic agency is denying that the European Union has demanded full details of its manufacture of centrifuge parts.

A Saturday report on the Iranian state TV website quotes agency spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi as saying, "We have not received such a demand through official sources."

The Associated Press reported Friday that the EU is demanding that Iran share with the U.N. full details of its manufacture of parts for machines that could be used to make the core of nuclear weapons. The draft statement seen by the AP will be delivered next week at a board meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Kamalvandi called the report baseless and said, "The Associated Press has resorted to such news fabrication about Iran's nuclear industry in the past too."
