Iran Says It's Ready to Cooperate

Thursday, October 29, 2009

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran is ready to cooperate with a United Nations proposal that would send its low-enriched uranium abroad where it can be treated for further enrichment.

Ahmadinejad expressed appreciation that the West had moved from "confrontation to interaction" in its nuclear dealings with his country.

"We welcome fuel exchange, nuclear cooperation, building of power plants and reactors and we are ready to cooperate," President Ahmadinejad told The AFP in a televised speech in the northeastern city of Mashad.

The BBC reports the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency had a "good trip" to a uranium enrichment plant in Qom, Iran. But the country has not yet signed former nuclear agreements with the U.N.
