British Foreign Secretary: Iran's nuclear ambitions raise reasonable concerns
Trend News Agency

Iran's announcement to triple the production of uranium enriched to 20 percent raise reasonable concerns about the peaceful nature of its nuclear program due to a number of technical reasons, British Foreign & Commonwealth Secretary William Hague believes.

"Inside Iran, this announcement by a discredited regime drew little comment and was quickly overshadowed by the domestic political theatre of the latest high-profile tussles between Supreme Leader Khameni and President Ahmadinjedad," Hague wrote in his article sent Trend by the British Embassy in Baku. "But it was an important statement because it makes even clearer that Iran’s programme is not designed for purely peaceful purposes."
