Nuclear Fuel Fabrication

How To Keep Iran Honest
9 February 2006

FOREIGN POLICY (WASINGTON DC) - It won’t make the hawks happy, but helping Iran build its civilian nuclear program may just be the best way to keep it from building bombs. The United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and China are now brandishing the threat of U.N. Security Council sanctions in an effort to stop Iran’s march toward a full-scale nuclear program. Unless Iran and the powers reach a negotiated agreement, the path apparently leads either to economic sanctions or military action—deeply problematic options for all involved. Lost in the debate over options for containing Iran’s nuclear ambitions is potentially the most effective one—Iran’s proposal to set up a nuclear fuel fabrication consortium on its own soil, in exchange for the transparency of intrusive inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
