There is no concern over Iran's peaceful n-program: Kuwaiti speaker
Kuwaiti Parliament Speaker Jasim al-Kharafi said here on Monday that there is no need for any concern over Iran's peaceful nuclear program, IRNA reported.
Iranian nuclear program have caused concern since 2003, when the IAEA became aware of its secret activities. In late 2003, Iran signed the Additional Protocol to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and voluntarily announced suspension of uranium enrichment. However, it later returned back to these activities.
Enriched uranium can be used to produce nuclear weapons. However, it is also necessary as fuel for nuclear power plants. A number of states, including the United States, believe that Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons, and want to prevent this development.
