Russia helps Iran go nuclear

by on November 11th, 2003

While the rest of the world is worrying about Iran’s nuclear weapons, Russia wants to help them build nuclear facilities.

[T]he news that the two countries had launched discussions over the construction of a second nuclear power station at Bushehr in southern Iran was a more concrete concession to Russia’s stance in defiance of the demands of senior US administration officials.

And when a recent UN report stated that history “clearly show[s] that in the past, Iran had concealed many aspects of its nuclear activities,” Russia’s assistance is not looking good.

But what’s to come between the former Soviet Union and a couple bucks? Certainly not the prospect of a nuclear Iran.
