UN Starts Nuclear Inspection in Iran
Last Sunday, the inspectors of the UN began their visit to Iran with the purpose of analyzing the complaints against a program that produces uranium with hostile purposes. Currently Iran faces a series of economic sanctions imposed by the main democracies of the world.
The results and conclusions of the three-day visit could influence the direction and urgency of the efforts of the United States to stop Iran’s capacity to produce uranium. Iran refuses to close their labs to strengthen uranium by saying that they seek to produce fuel for their nuclear reactors to generate electricity and use it for medical purposes.
The team of the UN includes two specialists in nuclear armament and the French Jacques Baute and the South African Neville Whiting. The inspectors will visit the subterranean plant near the city of Qom, at 130km to the south of Teheran. (AV)
