Steinitz on Iran: Yes to Electricity, No to Enrichment

Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz has called upon the international community to allow Iran to produce electricity with its nuclear reactor, but to prevent it from continuing its uranium enrichment program.

In an article published by the British economic periodical, the Financial Times, the MK stated, "Iran claims that its objective is to produce nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, while the global community does not want to see Iran develop nuclear weapons capabilities.  There is a simple answer to the conundrum - electricity...yes.  Uranium enrichment...no."
