IAEA: Iran continues work at uranium enrichment plant

January 21, 2004 Ha'aretz Yossi Melman

International Atomic Energy Agency sources told Haaretz Wednesday that Iran is continuing construction at its uranium enrichment plant, causing a new dispute to emerged between the agency and Tehran.

According to the sources, the dispute erupted amid continued Iranian construction of centrifuge devices at the uranium enrichment plant in Natanz.

Iran claims it will not enrich uranium, as required by an agrement reached last month with the IAEA, but adds it will continue its construction work on the Natanz site.

The IAEA says the agreement requires Iran to halt all nuclear activity, including construction of nuclear sites and installation of related equipment.

The United States shares the IAEA's interpretations of the agreement and Washington sources expressed anger over what they termed "Iranian evasion tricks."

European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana visited Tehran last week and discussed the terms of the agreement with Iranian Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, Hasan Rohani. Rohani made it clear while visiting Paris last week that "Iran will not agree to any restrictions imposed on its nuclear program, which will be used exclusively for peaceful purposes."

CAN'T BE! I'm shocked, I tell you! After all, they promised to shut the program down and allow inspectors, oh wait, they backed out, but then agreed again, or wait - did they back out again??????

I believe that Iran presents an even larger threat to the US than Iraq did....and I still think it was the right thing to do to take out Saddam.
