Iran is actively trying to buy nuclear technology through black-listed companies, according to a confidential UN report, citing information from the British government.  
  
The claims — which if true would violate UN sanctions — were made to a UN panel of ­experts just weeks after world powers reached a framework deal with Iran on curbing its ­nuclear program.

“The UK government informed the panel on the 20 April 2015 that it ‘is aware of an active Iranian nuclear procurement network which has been associated with Iran’s Centrifuge Technology Company and Kalay Electric Company’,” the report said.

KEC is on a UN list of black-listed Iranian companies for its ties to the nuclear program.
