Iran offers to share nuke technology with Africa

Iran`s nuclear chief, Fereidoun Abbasi, said his country has mastered the entire nuclear fuel cycle.



Tehran: Iran`s nuclear chief says his country is willing to help what he called "friendly" African nations that have uranium reserves to set up facilities to process the ore into nuclear material.

Fereidoun Abbasi says Iran has mastered the entire nuclear fuel cycle from extracting uranium ore to producing fuel for reactors and is ready to share the technology.

Abbasi`s comment was reported by the semi-official Mehr news agency on Saturday.

The offer appears aimed at touting Iran as a nuclear power that has mastered the technology and is willing to help others create peaceful nuclear programs.

Iran says its program is solely aimed at generating electricity and denies Western accusations that it seeks to build a bomb.
