Russia, Iran Sign Nuclear Deal
February 27, 2005. Russia will supply nuclear fuel to Iran for its
Bushehr nuclear plant, according to a deal signed today. The deal stipulates
that Iran must return all spent fuel to Moscow.Spent nuclear fuel contains
depleted uranium, which possibly could be used to develop arms. World
leaders hope the contract terms will allay US fears that Iran was planning to
use spent fuel to arm nuclear weapons.
February 28, 2005. Under the deal, Russia will provide nuclear fuel to
Iran, then take back the spent fuel, a step meant as a safeguard to ensure it
cannot be diverted into a weapons program. Iran has also agreed to allow
the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency,
to monitor Bushehr and the fuel deliveries.

February 28, 2005. MR. McCLELLAN: We have always supported the
efforts by our European friends to get Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons
ambitions. We want to see them succeed in those efforts. And we have
seen that over the last several months that Iran is now providing more
information to the International Atomic Energy Agency. They're providing
greater access to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
STRAIGHT from the SOURCE: The White House Press Release
March 3, 2005. BUSH: The guilty party is Iran. They're the ones who are
not living up to international accords. They're the people that the whole
world is saying, don't develop a weapon. And so we are working with our
friends to make sure not only the world hears that, but that the
negotiating strategy achieves the objective of pointing out where guilt needs
to be, as well as achieving the objective of no nuclear weapon.
