Iran Ready To Share Nuclear Technology
Just as his internal political rival Hashemi Rafsanjani is elected to head the Assembly of Experts, Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, announced that Iran is ready to offer nuclear technology to other IAEA members.
The Iranian nation is prepared to offer its nuclear acheivements to other members of the International Atomic Energy Agency, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reaffirmed at the foreign ministerial NAM conference being held in Tehran Monday.
Delivering the inaugural address at the conference, President Ahmadinejad lambasted some of the hegemonic powers for exerting pressure on the IAEA to deprive Iran of its legitimate nuclear rights. "The Iranian nation is ready to offer its nuclear achievements in the form of educational programs to the other IAEA members according to the Agency's regulations and under its supervision," Ahmadinejad stated.
Perhaps he can begin by educating the IAEA and its members on the unresolved issues regarding the still-largely clandestine Iranian program, which is managed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and not Iran's civilian nuclear agency.
The IAEA published a letter from Iran last week in which Iran charted out a conditional time line for resolving issues. While Iran touted the letter as proof that issues are resolved due to its proposed 'framework,' the fact remains that no more is known about its programs than last week, last month or last year.
Iran had promised in the past to share its nuclear technology with all Muslim states. Most of the world would call that nuclear proliferation. Not at all dissimilar from how it attained much of its current knowledge and technology via the illicit A.Q. Khan nuclear proliferation network.
