"We support Iran and Russia holding nuclear negotiations and we hope the negotiations can achieve positive results," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao told a regular news conference. "Given current developments, China...

PARIS (Reuters) - Iran is ready to ask its parliament to ratify an accord allowing U.N. inspectors to resume snap checks of its nuclear facilities on certain conditions, Iran's embassy in Paris said on Friday. The Iranian statement, which came the day after France accused Iran of pursuing a secret military nuclear programme, sketched out a three-stage process to end a standoff with the international community over Iran's nuclear program. Ratification of the Additional Protocol of the...

By Parinoosh Arami TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran said on Thursday it had not yet begun any uranium enrichment and was still ready to negotiate on a Russian proposal for resolving a dispute with the West over its nuclear program. The Islamic Republic said the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), could monitor its nuclear program despite Tehran's decision to remove some surveillance cameras. The only solution to the impasse, it said, was for the West to stop...

PARIS -- French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said on Thursday Iran was pursuing a clandestine military nuclear program. "No civilian nuclear program can explain the Iranian nuclear program. So it is a clandestine Iranian military nuclear program," Douste-Blazy told France 2 television. "The international community has sent a very firm message by saying to the Iranians: 'Come back to reason. Suspend all nuclear activity and the enrichment of uranium and the conversion of uranium,"'...

By Mark Heinrich VIENNA (Reuters) - Threatening to apply new U.S. sanctions, Washington accused Iran on Wednesday of defying the world by resuming uranium enrichment for nuclear fuel. Russia urged Tehran to change course to allow a compromise. Iran resumed small-scale feeding of uranium gas into centrifuge enrichment machines on Tuesday, officials close to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said. European powers persuaded Tehran to suspend enrichment in November 2003 over...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - By resuming uranium enrichment for nuclear fuel, Iran is in "open defiance" of the international community, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Wednesday. Rice told the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the Bush administration has been examining the "full range of sanctions on Iran" and is also considering additional sanctions the United States could impose on its own, although international action would be more effective. "They have...

By Mark Heinrich VIENNA -- EU president Austria said on Wednesday Iran's resumption of work to enrich uranium for nuclear fuel had needlessly raised tensions with the West, which fears Tehran is covertly striving to build atomic bombs. U.N. inspectors saw Iranian scientists feeding uranium gas into a few centrifuge machines in a test run on Tuesday, officials associated with the International Atomic Energy Agency said. The action defied Western efforts to have Iran give up enrichment work in...

By Parisa Hafezi TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran on Tuesday resumed feeding uranium gas into centrifuges for nuclear-fuel enrichment after a break of 2-1/2 years, stoking a diplomatic showdown with the West which suspects Tehran secretly seeks to build atomic bombs. Iran earlier on Tuesday announced it was deferring until next week talks on a Russian proposal to defuse the standoff, but gave no sign it was ready to stop purifying uranium on its own soil -- the key element in Moscow's plan....

VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran has begun feeding uranium hexafluoride gas into centrifuges at its pilot nuclear fuel enrichment facility at Natanz, an official close to the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency said on Tuesday. He said International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors had observed Iranian scientists putting UF6 gas into a "very small number" of centrifuges, machines that can turn uranium into fuel for nuclear reactors or, if enriched to high levels, atomic bombs. The head of Iran's...

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran has not yet started running centrifuges to produce enriched uranium, which the West suspects Tehran wants to make atomic weapons, a senior Iranian official told Reuters on Tuesday. Iran, which says it wants to enrich uranium only to the low level needed for power stations, ordered the resumption uranium enrichment after being reported to the U.N. Security Council earlier this month. "No work has been done on the centrifuges and no gas has been injected yet,"...

Uranium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol U and atomic number 92. A heavy, silvery-white, toxic, metallic, and naturally-radioactive element, uranium belongs to the actinide series and its isotope 235U is used as the fuel for nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons. Uranium is commonly found in very small amounts in rocks, soil, water, plants, and animals (including humans). Notable characteristics When refined, uranium is a silvery white, weakly radioactive...
