VIENNA – Iran is close to clinching a deal to clandestinely import 1,350 tons of purified uranium ore from Kazakhstan, according to an intelligence report obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. Diplomats said the assessment was heightening international concern about Tehran's nuclear activities.

Such a deal would be significant because, according to an independent research group, Tehran appears to be running out of the material, which it needs to feed its uranium enrichment program.

The report was drawn up by a member nation of the International Atomic Energy Agency and provided to the AP on condition that the country not be identified because of the confidential nature of the information.

The article in questions cites several sources and is attributed to the AP, fairly good source of info I'd say. Once again Iran seems to willfully antagonize the UN.

smuggle
clandestinely import


Whether the report is accurate or not, it amuses me somewhat that the official government purchase of material from "the state uranium company" of another country would be dscribed as "clandestine smuggling."
