NEW YORK (Reuters) - The International Atomic Energy Agency may inspect Iran’s newly revealed nuclear fuel facility, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Friday.
“We don’t have any problems with (IAEA) inspections of the facility,” Ahmadinejad told a news conference in New York. “We have no fears.”
Ahmadinejad said Iran was also hoping to buy enriched uranium for medical purposes from any country willing to sell, and was hopeful that Oct. 1 talks with Western powers concerned over its nuclear program would help decrease tension.
