Another round of talks on Iran’s nuclear problem is getting under way in the Kazakh city of Almaty later today. Taking part are the six international mediators (the five UN Security Council permanent member-states plus Germany), and the delegation of Iran.
The parties to the talks will focus on Tehran’s ongoing effort to enrich uranium.The western nations are pressing Iran to give up the effort, since uranium, enriched to 20%, could be used by Iran to manufacture a nuclear bomb. But Tehran claims that its programme is exclusively peaceful in character and that it needs uranium as fuel for its research reactor.
