Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is offering to resume talks over its nuclear program as soon as possible, according to a copy of a letter he sent to the European Union and obtained by CNN.
Iran flaunted a new generation of centrifuges and mastery of the nuclear fuel cycle on Wednesday as Ahmadinejad, clad in a white lab coat, was on hand to load domestically made fuel rods into the core of a Tehran reactor.
Iran boasts nuclear progress
Also announced was an intent to start production of yellowcake, a chemically treated form of uranium ore used for making enriched uranium.
United Nations sanctions ban Iran from importing yellowcake. Domestic production would further Iran's nuclear self-sufficiency.
In a speech outlining the latest developments, Ahmadinejad said Iran was willing to share its nuclear knowledge with other nations that subscribe to the watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
He didn't blink. It's a old tactic to buy more time.
We are about to enter into nuke negotiations with a far more secretive, totalitarian and unpredictable regime – N.Korea.
Why not with Iran?
Or would be always prefer to go the way of failed military confrontations in that region?
That's using logic my friend..,
I just wish sanity prevails this time. We have had enough with those 'war drum beaters' with a compulsive disorder.
Have a good one.
ya know, if we treated people like equals, they might act like equals..
Please do... talk and talk and talk! His bragging will be his downfall.
What more is there to say but that Global Disarmament is mandatory, and brotherhood/sisterhood should be remembered and embraced.
