Selling nuclear fuel

The week's news at a glance.

Tehran

Iran said this week that it had developed the ability to enrich uranium and that it planned to sell the fuel on the open market. “No one can deprive us of this natural, legal, and legitimate right,” said Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazzi. He said Iran would sell uranium for peaceful purposes only and would clear all transactions with the International Atomic Energy Agency. Iran insists it does not have a nuclear weapons program. But inspectors from the agency already in Iran recently found Pakistani designs for equipment that is more sophisticated than Iran has acknowledged having—equipment that could produce weapons-grade uranium.
