Iran to Share Nuclear Technology with Islamic Nations
The AP reports Iran's hard-line president President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today Iran is willing to provide other Islamic nations with nuclear technology.
Ahmadinejad repeated his promise not to pursue nuclear weapons, IRNA reported. Then he added: "Iran is ready to transfer nuclear know-how to the Islamic countries due to their need."
A senior nonaligned diplomat in Vienna said high-level contacts were under way between Tehran and EU countries on what concessions Iran was prepared to make in exchange for a delaying Iran's accounting to the U.N. Security Council.
Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice last week appealed openly to China, Russia, India and other nations to support the United States in threatening Iran with sanctions for refusing to halt its nuclear program. Russia quickly opposed imposing Security Council sanctions on Iran, and the White House acknowledged Wednesday that President Bush was unable to get such a commitment from Chinese President Hu Jintao.
What Iran apparently does not appreciate is how dangerous nuclear waste disposal becomes and how deadly power generation can be (Chernobyl, Three-Mile Island.). Iran intends to use nuclear technology for medical needs, and is unconcerned. Good luck, Iran, accidents happen.
