Diplomats Tour Iranian Nuclear Sites
Iran has invited the world — sans the U.S. — to come and tour several of its nuclear sites. Diplomats from other countries did visit the sites in what Iran says was an effort of good will and transparency.
China, Russia and the European Union refused the invitation. –JCL
A group of foreign diplomats is touring some of Iran’s nuclear sites, as Tehran seeks to build support for its controversial nuclear programme.
Iran said it was a gesture of goodwill and transparency, but the US was not invited – while China, Russia and the EU refused the invitation.
Tehran said its uranium enrichment programme was progressing “strongly”.
It was responding to US claims that the programme was being hit by international sanctions.
